Children's Book Review~Look Inside the Time of Jesus
Look Inside The Time of Jesus is a sturdy hardcover board book with lift-the-flaps inside on every page. The text is by Lois Rock, with illustrations by Lorenzo Orlandi. It is geared toward the 5-7 age range, but my 3 year old grandson and 12 year old son both really enjoyed reading it and lifting the flaps.
The Time of Jesus covers Jesus' birth to his resurrection, and places he went in between. A few of the topics are 'By the Shores of Galilee', 'The Temple in Jerusalem', and 'A Roman Trial.' Each page has several flaps of varying sizes that are easy to locate and open. I really thought the text on each page was appropriate length for this age group-just enough to teach them but not lose their interest. The illustrations are bright and entertaining.
Lift the flap books are a great way to engage and teach children. Look Inside The Time of Jesus accomplishes this, and is very well made, making it able to last through multiple children. It is published by Lion Children's Books.
