Children’s Corner — Noah And The Noisy Ark

7 Jun

 

 

It’s time for Noah’s big adventure! A rainstorm is coming, and Noah needs to build an ark and find two of each animal to keep warm and dry inside. This retelling of the story of Noah’s Ark will take little ones from building a big boat to seeing a rainbow in the sky after the storm. Featuring brand-new art from the beloved The Beginner’s Bible, a die-cut format, and a beautiful foiled cover, parents will love sharing this board book with their children.

 

My Impressions:

In Noah And The Noisy Ark, a favorite Bible story is told in a simple manner for the smallest of readers. And because it is part of the Beginner’s Bible series, parents can be assured that God’s word is faithfully followed. Colorful illustrations portray the days of Noah — the disobedience of the people and the faithfulness of Noah. This book is a sturdy board book with a built in handle so that your child can carry it around the house or on car trips. Expect this one to be read over and over! But isn’t that great? Instilling God’s word, plan, and promises in even the tiniest of hearts!

Children’s Corner — BibleMan Flip Book

31 May

 

 

What’s better than a new Bibleman adventure? Two new Bibleman adventures!
When you open this Bibleman Flip-Over book, you’ll find two exciting stories and learn two lessons from God’s Word! Read about how the Bibleteam teaches obedience in Disabling the Disobey Ray. Then flip the book over to see them use faith to take on another villain in Lighting Up the Shadow of Doubt

1. Disabling the Disobey Ray (An Adventure in Obedience)
Let’s face it: Bibleman has a soft spot for Christian kids. And everybody knows it—including villain Luxor Spawndroth. So while it’s easy to lure the Bibleteam into rescuing kids in danger, the hard part for bad guys begins when the purple crew shows up. Will Bibleman be able to spot Luxor’s trap? Bible story: Adam & Eve. Key verse: Ephesians 6:1–2.

2. Lighting Up the Shadow of Doubt (An Adventure in Faith)
Cypher and Bibleman are going to jail!? Oh, they’re visiting some young men at a juvenile detention center. And Pastor Lewis is taking Logan there on Bible study day to visit his brother and meet Bibleman. Wait — who is that shadowy character in the waiting room? Bible story: Jesus & Peter Walk on Water. Key verse: John 8:12.

 

My Impressions: 

Keep your kids reading this Summer with the action-packed Bibleman Flip-Over Book featuring two stories inspired by God’s word. Especially good for elementary school-aged boys, this book has lots of superhero fun while pointing the reader to truth. The two stories, Disabling The Disobey Ray (obedience) and Lighting Up The Shadow of Doubt (faith) show Bibleman and the entire BibleTeam in action against the schemes of the bad guys. BibleMan always wins the day using weapons of truth. Each story begins with a Bible verse — a great way to reinforce Scripture memorization. Readers are then directed to read a passage of Scripture that the stories illustrate. There are several follow-up questions great for quiet reflection and sharing with the family. More verses are shared to further the quest for Bible truths. This book is a good way to introduce your kids to the spiritual warfare that surrounds the believer, with an emphasis on the power of God’s word and His Holy Spirit. Not scary in any way, its illustrations are those easy for kids to relate to and understand.

Whether your kids read this book on their own or it is used for family time, the Bibleman Flip-Over Book is a great addition to the family library.

Audience: kids ages 5-10.

My Impressions:

When my kids were school-aged, I tried my best to keep them engaged in learning during their summer break. Camps, field trips, hands-on experiences, and, of course, reading, were mixed in with fun in the sun and lazy days. Though my reading plans were often met with resistance, all three of my kids love reading now, though they differ in their interests. And that’s where my review of The Bible Explorer’s Guide comes in. This book is a great resource to provide your kids with hours of engaging and world-expanding reading fun. The subtitle of this book for kids in the 3rd-6th grades is 1000 Amazing Facts And Photos — something to spark the interest in any kid, no matter their interests. They may even find a new passion to explore! While providing interesting information, maps, illustrations and archeological facts, it also provides a springboard for exploring God’s Word too. There are 35+ articles that follow scriptural chronology, both Old and New Testaments, as well as a Biblical timeline and Who’s Who in the Bible. From history and the natural world to the mystery of God’s plan, The Bible Explorer’s Guide is the perfect accompaniment for fun, this summer and throughout the year.

Recommended.

Audience: children in grades 3-6.
