- good activity book & teaching tool by Vera on 7/16/2013
It is activity time for the kiddies and what are you going to give them to do? They've colored with crayons. They've marked with "markers". They've stacked the stacking blocks. "Mommy, I want something to do-o-o-o-o-!"
Kregel and Lion Hudson have teamed with Juliet David and Simon Abbot to bring us another kiddie book to delight. This time the kids get to "paint" the pictures of Bible stories starting with Adam and Eve and going through the Old and New Testament. The text (this is NOT just a painting book) doesn't really tell a whole story, rather it highlights a major event.... "Jacob has given his best-loved son Joseph a wonderful new coat. His brothers are very jealous!"
Now, you're going to have to provide a brush for the kids to use, but the "paints" are included inside the front and back covers which open up to become "palettes." You just have to remember to let the "palettes" dry before you close the painting book.
I can see using the books as a teaching tool to review stories already read in full to the kiddies - always good to have tools that teach. These would be available at book stores and for online purchases. Now as the title indicates, there is a book #1, too. You might want to grab both.
DISCLOSURE: I was provided a complimentary copy by Kregel for the purpose of my honest review. No compensation was given for this review.
- Learning With A Craft by Maureen on 7/15/2013
The boys cannot leave this book alone, was so happy that two palettes are included in this book. There are pages are perforated, and it made it so easy to share the book.
We read the verse under each of the pages, and spoke about what the picture is about, and then each of my guys set out painting. They had a wonderful time enjoying this, and didn't want to put it away. Tomorrow is another day, and know that they will be asking for more.
What a great way to spend a cold winter day, or a rainy one. Enjoy!!
I received this book through Kregel for review purposes, and was not required to give a positive review.
- Sunday School or Home Use by Sarah on 6/27/2013
It' s a painting book, and the inside covers that fold out are the 'paint'. You just need water and a brush (or qtip as preschool teachers taught me!) to paint!!
My 3 year old was a bit confused by it and her attention span is fleeting with 'art'. But she tried it and thought it was fun. I think in another few months, it will be a favorite of hers.
The pictures are very child friendly, warm and inviting people, and each page has a simple sentence to describe the story or ask a question. Nice simple facts that will interest kids. I think the images/stories were well chosen to fit most preschool Sunday school curriculum. I like that it has both Old Testament and New Testament stories. It's a painting book, if you are looking for a simple integration to connect an image to a lesson, a truth, that you will teach, this could be a great enrichment. The best part is that the messy part of painting is so easily contained!
I received this book from Kregel to review, all opinions are my own.
