Created by Stephen Elkins and illustrated by Jim Conaway, this book offers an inviting format. The colorful illustrations are done in a friendly cartoon style. Memory verse sidebars and practical applications of Scripture are encouraged throughout. Additional features include:
- 40 Bible stories from Creation to Paul's letters from prison
- 40 games - some similar to boardgames are done in the book, others are just fun ideas to pass the time
- 40 coloring pages - These may be removed from the book for easy sharing.
- 70-minute praise CD performed by a quality children's choir - Many are familiar favorites. Lesser known songs are taken directly from Scripture providing an easy tool for memorization.
- 4 sticker pages, including one for each state, if you want to play the license plate game
- a 100-page activity book filled with crosswords, mazes, puzzles and more
What I Dislike: I wish the CD envelope were attached to the hardcover rather than to the first page; I'm worried it might tear. But, considering the price, this is an extremely minor detail not detracting from the book's exceptional value.
Overall Rating: Excellent!
Age Appeal: 4-8, but I think kids through 10 will enjoy it.
