God's Word Is Cool, co-authored by Beverly Weaver & Jordyn Thompson and illustrated by Clifford weaver, is an interactive study guide of the Bible for kids. There are lessons for everyday issues and Biblical topics, like God’s love, the Devil and lying (just to name a few). A brief explanation of each topic is given, followed by discussion questions and a Bible verse. Space is also given for children to draw or write something that relates to each lesson.
What I Like: The simplicity. The book is very simply put together and is easy-to-follow and comprehend.
What I Dislike: I was very disappointed with the illustrations in the book. They are not very appealing. They remind me of clip-art.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: The publisher suggests an audience of 5-12-year-olds. Given the book’s format, I would say the age group would be more like 5-10.
