An activity book with stickers to keep children entertained during vacations or rainy days
This fun activity book includes on-the-page puzzles, games, and stories—all based around the story of Noah. There is also a page of stickers for completing the activities. The cute and colorful illustrations jump off the page and keep children engaged with the activities. There's plenty for children to do, on their own or with an adult, and this handy book can be used during the holidays, on journeys, or just to fill the time on a rainy day.
MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5GREAT BOOK FOR LITTLE BIBLE STUDENTS!July 31, 2013MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Little students of the Word need extra incentive and encouragement to learn about the Bible. This book will certainly do the trick. It is entertaining, interesting, and super colorful. It is just the thing to capture and hold short attention spans.
Each page has an activity, game or puzzle to not only help them grasp the story of Noah's ark, but also to help them remember it by associating details with something fun. All of it is written on the level of young children, nothing above their heads.
The pages are heavy so that they won't easily tear with eager little page turners. The stickers are sturdy so for small hands to hold and place. After all the fun is done this is a quality book that can be looked at again and again. It will be extra special to the child because he or she helped "make it".
This is a very nice book to purchase as a gift or for your child's personal library. Not your typical sticker book for sure!
I received this book free from Kregel Publications. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
BookmomsChardon, OHAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Great for a Summer Road TripJune 13, 2013BookmomsChardon, OHAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2This sticker and activity book bases it's contents on the story of Noah and the Ark. There are a lot of stickers, a short board game, a recipe to try and a counting activity as well as a very abbreviated version of the story.
Positives: This would be a great book to purchase for an upcoming road trip. The amount of stickers and activities would keep kids occupied for quite awhile.
Negatives: I wasn't thrilled with the Bible story account given. It focuses more on the animals and not on showing us God's character that we learn about through this story. There was no reference to the grace and mercy shown to Noah or God's faithfulness and goodness. It also fails to mention the reason of the flood and God's judgment of sin. The only other downside is that once the stickers are all used, there aren't a lot of other activities to keep using the book. However, still a nice book to occupy kids for a time.
Talking Points: As your child does the activities and you read to them, be sure and use Scripture (Genesis 6-9) to teach your children about the character of God. This story teaches us so much about our own sinful hearts, God's holiness and judgment of sin, and the riches of his grace that he granted Noah and his family and us today.
Age Level: 4-6 years of age.
I received a free copy of this book from Kregel Publishing in exchange for this book.
Sarah PDubuque, IAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5so much more than a sticker book!June 7, 2013Sarah PDubuque, IAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I am so excited that christian publishers are giving parents more options in kids activities that have a christian theme. My three year old and I snuggled up on the couch to read the 'story' of Noah's Ark with a huge variety of activities!! It not only has stickers, a game, a spot the difference, counting fun, a recipe, a poem, what's that animal, etc. It was not your ordinary sticker book! It is a bit advanced for my three year old, but that is delightful that a 'consumable' book isn't consumed in one afternoon!! We 'stickered' a few pages, read most of it, but will have to revisit it later to do more of the activities. It would be great as a teaching tool or a quiet book in church (once you have read it together.)
There are light spots in the same shape where a sticker should go, and the sticker page easily pulls out from the middle of the book to pull them off and put them right on. My daughter was delighted. Now that we have read it, I will add it to our church bag, and she will finish it mostly independently!! I was impressed that the sticker page was easy to get the stickers off of, my daughter is the queen of stickers these days and often I have to pull ALL the stickers of their backing for her. So this was a huge plus.
The content of the book was a very simplistic version of Noah's story. It was very sound with preschool age skills- colors (spelled in the UK way...colours), animals their sounds, counting, seasons, etc. It is an excellent educational tool and it is engaging. It has bright colors and warm people/animals to look at. My one criticism is the storyline which can be easily fixed by the parent or teacher reading aloud. You will have to add in the deeper theological content. Many may not mind, and may even want this book just to familiarize their children with christian tradition. Here's my take:Please note: I am a bit of a critic and like even two year olds to hear doctrine directly. I wished that it was more direct and had stated that the people had sinned and caused God to destroy the people who did not seek Him. I wished it had pointed more to who God is and why we had a flood. It was very simple. It said that God said "The rain will flood this bad old world." That was it. It did end the story by saying that God said "I will never send another flood." I wished it had mentioned the promise God made and that it was a covenant! Like I said. I am a critic.
I would still use this book with kids. I found the activities delightful, entertaining, and not a one afternoon thing, this book would be revisited several times to be completely done. I think it is good for the 3 year old to even 7 or 8 year old range. Older kids would complete it faster, maybe in one or two afternoons, but the game and some activities could be revisited. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for the simplistic teaching of Biblical truth.
I was given this book to review this activity book by Kregel Publications. All opinions are my own.
