Rumble! Zap! Pow! - Might Stories Of God: Review

About The Book:

This bright Bible storybook highlights the adventurous stories in the Bible and points its readers to God’s mighty power. The language is action-packed and kid-friendly, which makes it a great book to read out loud. The short stories, easy-to-read bold words sprinkled throughout each story, and the bright, cartoon-styled art will keep kids engaged. Each story is paired with a “Mighty Thought”—a simple statement that summarizes the Bible story. (Examples include God made the world; God is always in charge; God is a mighty leader; God rescues his people; God makes his power known). At the end of the story, the Power Words section gives a short scripture that can be used as a memory verse. The story ends with an activity designed for the active child (measure yourself with books and measure Goliath’s height with books; make a megaphone from a milk jug—to have a loud voice like Jonah needed)

My Review:

If you have a boy in your home between the ages of six and ten years of ages, you will want to check out Rumble! Zap! Pow!: Mighty Stories of God. With bright colors, these 40 stories cover both Old and New Testaments in comic book designs! With easy to read sentences throughout, even the youngest of readers can read God's word. Each story has an activity to do, a scripture reference and a object lesson! Perfect for doing devotions with your young man of God! I did read many of the stories to my four year old daughter, and she loved it too! 

Your children will hear the stories of Moses, Creation, Jesus' Birth, The Exodus from Egypt and so many more wonderful Bible Stories. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up! With Christmas only 80 short days away, this would be a perfect gift idea!

    God bless!
