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.
Words to Dream On – Bedtime Bible Stories and Prayers by Diane Storz is a wonderful retelling of several well-known stories taken from the Word of God. There are over 50 stories from both the Old and New Testament included. I noted that chronological order is kept starting out with the creation story in Genesis and ending with the promise to return found in the book of Revelations.
The Princess Faith Sticker & Activity Book is perfect for fans of the The Princess Parables series. There are sixteen pages with a variety of activities and 50 reusable stickers to use however one wishes! The princess theme and the skill level of the activities makes this an ideal pick for girls age four to eight years old. However, one should take into consideration that the completion of each activity will solely depend on each individual.
The Little Bunny’s Bible is and adorable board book. It features a unique gray bunny on the front that is very cute and super soft to the touch. The toddler through kindergarten crowd are sure to be intrigued by just the cover and in turn also delighted by the stories of God’s love for them within.
There are eight stories taken from both the Old and New Testament of the Bible. The stories are: God’s Wonderful Work, God’s Friend Noah, Daniel in the Lions’ Den, Jonah Learns a Lesson, God’s Greatest Gift, The Lost Lamb, It’s a Miracle, and Jesus Opens Heaven’s Doors. Each story mentions the scripture where the story can also be found in the Bible. The book is written in an easy to understand rhyming way. The rhyme flows well when read and is more likely to be remembered by a child. The illustrations are like a painting and were loved by both my son and daughter.
