My Bible Story Coloring Book

It's a coloring book! It's a Bible! It's the perfect way to introduce little ones to God's Word!

I received a free copy of this product as a member of Zondervan's Z Blog Squad in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

Gv has several dollar-store coloring books that contain Bible stories that she has always enjoyed, so I expected this to be the same thing:

But it wasn't. 

Oh, no. It was so much more.

First of all, this sucker is thick.

Just how thick? Try 144 pages of heavyweight paper that will stand up to markers, paint, or whatever other medium your little artist applies.

Secondly, most biblical-themed coloring books have a picture or two to represent a few of the most popular Bible stories, but this book contains actual portions of the NIrV text (which is a super-simple version for new readers) as the focus, with the color-able (how do you like that description?) illustrations used to support it.

Aren't these illustrations just the cutest? I love how they're simple drawings (which I think is crucial for a good coloring book) but still so full of expression!

I had assumed this book would be stored with the rest of the coloring books, but I quickly saw that it was more appropriate to store alongside our story Bibles!

32 different Bible stories are featured in this book, with about four to eight pages devoted to each one.

I really like how the book is organized, too. There are special introductory pages showing the different sections of the Bible: Covenant History, Prophets, Writings and New Testament. These pages are just as cute to color and help kids understand how the books are arranged a bit better.

One thing I'm really excited about is putting this little book to work during our Latticed Learning time each week. I'm planning to read our weekly Bible story from this book first on Mondays and then read the same story from our other children's Bibles during the rest of the week while Gv works on coloring the coordinating pages in this one.

Gv is most excited that I'm finally writing this review because it has been sitting on the shelf next to my desk enticing her each day since it arrived.

She knows she can't "do" the book until I'm finished with it, but she has looked through just about every page of the thing every day for the past month!

I can't wait for her to wake up in the morning!

You can find this clever coloring book/story Bible here and foster your child's creativity while helping them remember classic Bible stories!

This book would make a fabulous coloring book OR a great little story Bible, but it most successfully combines the two! Have you seen anything like it before?  I'd love to hear!  Either leave a comment below or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
