The illustrations are vibrant and inviting. Some of the Biblical story is actually told through the illustrations rather than the text. For example, not all ten plagues are mentioned in the text, but readers can find the hail and darkness under one of the larger flaps on that page.
What I Like: Kids can't put it down! This book teaches the life of Moses with attractive illustrations, bright colors and interactive flaps. It also teaches counting and object permanence. References are included on each page for further study in your children's Bible. I also like that the flaps are not all the same size. Some are quite large and, when opened, extend outside the book.
What I Dislike: The rhyme isn't quite perfect in some spots. Also, the story is accurate, but it leaves some questions curious preschoolers will definitely ask. For example, if Moses was adopted by a princess, why was he living in the desert? If the king (Pharaoh) let them go, why are his soldiers chasing them in the picture?
Overall Rating: Very Good!
Age Appeal: 3 and up, but my 2 year old LOVES this book!
