Joseph and the Colorful Coat By Brendan Powell Smith {Book Review}


Joseph and the Colorful Coat By Brendan Powell Smith is just one of many other stories in The Brick Bible for Kids series. In using LEGO , these renditions of well known Bible stories are sure to capture the interest of children of all ages. The story is completely illustrated using LEGO bricks and is done very well. The scenes chosen for the story stick true to the era, specific place in time, and culture. For example there’s pyramids, walls with Egyptian hieroglyphics, animals such as goats, cows, camels, and so forth. The characters attire and hair styles were was chosen well. I appreciate all the attention to detail that was obviously intricately thought out.

Red, Yellow, Blue (And a Dash of White, Too!) {Book Review}



Red, Yellow, Blue (And a Dash of White, Too!) illustrated and written by  Charles George Esperanza is a book that draws ones inner creativity out! In this story, we meet a young girl with a love for painting. She explores and tries all sorts of new things with every brush stroke, every color used, and creates such vividly imaginative scenes from start to finish! I love presenting my children with a book that demonstrates creativity being only limited to ones imagination. Art can seem messy but I believe the point here is that’s there’s no wrong way to go about it.

My children ask a lot of questions and are eager to learn more about God and the Bible. Since the Bible can be difficult for them to understand on their own and there are times when I can’t sit down with them, I intentionally like to keep storybooks and readers around. I can’t stress enough the importance of having material for children around that they can study, ask questions about, take to heart, and form opinions about. I prefer materials that stick pretty close to the actual event of things that took place and have the Adventure Bible series to meet that standard.
