The USBORNE BIBLE STORIES JIGSAW BOOK

Author: Heather Amery, retold by

Illustrator: Linda Edwards

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Usborne Publishing Limited,

Material: board book

Summary: One-page stories from the Old Testament are complemented with a picture puzzle to teach children about Adam and Eve, Noah, Jonah, Daniel, Moses, and Christ's birth. This collection of Bible stories offer young listeners a chance to build a puzzle that complements the story being told.

Type of Reading: playtime reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 9; read yourself: 6 to 9

Interest Level: 3 to 8

Age of Child: Shared with child nearly 6 years old.

Young Reader Reaction: Our child was familiar with several of the stories and was more interested in working with the puzzles than sitting to read the stories together.

Adult Reader Reaction: What a great book for introducing Bible stories to children. The stories are told with vocabulary and themes appropriate for the target audience. The jigsaw puzzle makes it easy to keep the child busy and listening while you are reading. We liked the fact that the selections went beyond Adam, Eve, and Noah!

Pros: This sturdy board book offers an engaging, hands-on way to introduce children to the Bible and its stories.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. Because of the puzzle pieces, this is not likely to be a book you can borrow at the library. The stories in this book are ones that children will hear (and want to hear) repeatedly. As they grow from listeners to readers, this will be a treasured "first" Bible.
