Stickers and coloring books are big favorites around our house, so I decided to check out The Beginner’s Bible All About Jesus Sticker and Activity Book (design by Jody Langley). After glancing through the book, I decided that it would be most appropriate for my five-year-old, so I gave it to her and said, “have fun!”
This short book (16 pages) has a variety of coloring pages and activities, along with plenty of stickers. Each page focuses on a different story about Jesus. There is not a specific age range listed on the book, but I would say it is most appropriate for 5-7 year olds. Some activities (stickers, coloring, matching) can be completed by non-readers, but about half of the activities require reading in order to follow the directions.
According to Emma (5), “This book is fun! The stickers are my favorite!”
I agree, it is a fun book with bright, engaging illustrations. My biggest caution would be that there are no specific scripture references included with the stories about Jesus, so the book does not lend itself to being well associated with the real Bible. However, I found the messages to be accurate (short) paraphrases of Gospel stories. This book would make a great stocking stuffer, Easter basket filler, or a “just because” fun treat. It is priced at $3.99, making it an affordable, enjoyable activity.
