Keep curious young minds busy with these detailed depictions of Bible history, and a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page
Jesus took his message to all kinds of people in all kinds of places—from the shores of Lake Galilee to the bustling streets of Jerusalem. This book takes readers right into the world that he knew, with appealing illustrations and flaps that open to reveal all kinds of fascinating details. Brief text explains the setting, and references events and stories from Jesus' life. The book covers the first Christmas, illustrations of 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.

My take on this book:
The Time Of Jesus lift a flap discovery book is just what it says! It will allow children to discover many different stories surrounding Jesus. A visual journey that takes young readers from a stable in Bethlehem to the shores of Galilee and many places in between. Each story is two pages, with a paragraph in the top left hand corner to describe a little about the story that unfolds on the two opened pages. While the stories are great it's the lift up flaps that lend a richness to those stories. This sturdy little book will certainly capture a child's imagination as they discover what lies behind each flap as they are transported into the world that Jesus knew. The construction of this book seems quite sturdy, and the lift up flaps fit securely back in place so the book continues to look neat after numerous readings. Overall this book would make a great addition to any youngsters library, but I think it would also be neat to use in  Sunday school, or homeschool setting.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
