Look Inside the Time of Jesus: A Book Review


About The Book:

A fascinating flap book full of bustling scenes from the time of Jesus that will keep inquiring young minds busy. Detailed depictions of Bible history are enhanced by a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page. Brief text explains the setting of the picture, and references events and stories from Jesus’ life. The captivating pictures and to-the-point text make this book especially useful for encouraging reluctant readers. The book covers the first Christmas, a synagogue and carpenter’s workshop in Nazareth, fishing in Capernaum, farming and shepherding in the hills of Galilee, homes of the wealthy and everyday people, the temple in Jerusalem, the way of the cross, and the first Easter.

About The Author:

 Lois Rock has established an international reputation as a children’s writer. Specializing in Bible stories, prayer books, and information books, her books have been translated into over thirty languages with sales approaching four million copies. She draws on her experience as a mother of three and as a leader of church children’s groups.

My Review:

With amazing details under the lift-the-flaps, brightly illustrated pages, and board book material that allows for durability, this book is a delightful read. Your child will learn about foods, buildings, clothing and other cultural information about the time of Jesus. It will not only educate your child about Bible times, but will absolutely encourage deliberate dialogue between parent and child.  A delightful gift idea for any child this holiday season.

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