Kid's Guide To Bible Animals: A Book Review

About The Book:

Here’s a Bible reference kids will actually want to read! Kids love animals, and the Kids’ Guide to Bible Animals will lead them on a journey of discovery. This fully-illustrated book for 8–12-year-olds details every animal, bird and insect in scripture, from antelopes to camels, donkeys to fleas, pigs to worms—100 in all. Descriptions of each creature are provided, along with details of their importance in Bible times. Intriguing “Did You Know?” sidebars highlight some of the weird and amazing aspects of the animal world. It’s all wrapped up in a bright, colorful package that kids will love.

About The Author:

Jane Landreth enjoys touching young lives with God’s love. She taught school until she gave birth to a son, then officially launched her writing career using her son’s adventures for story and article ideas. She and her husband, Jack, reside in the Ozarks, where she writes for children and teaches writing for a distance-learning school.

My Review:

What a fantastic book for your older elementary aged children! They will learn about animals of all kinds, what they eat, where they live, and so much more information! You will also discover where they can be found in the Bible. For example, you can find Apes in 1 Kings 10:22 and did you know that Apes and Humans are ticklish in the same body areas? Neither did I. Seriously, this book is full of fantastic little tidbits, that everyone in the family will enjoy and learn from!

A perfect book for Christian families, home schooling families and Christian educators alike! Although I have younger children, it was fun reading some of the book (on the computer) to them and they absolutely loved the full color illustrations too! I will definitely be looking to purchase a hard copy of this book in the future.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
