As summer comes along I'm always on the look out for fun ways to incorporate learning into our daily life without doing a full on day's worth of actual school/ curriculum. I was so excited to receive The Bible Explorer's Guide: 1000 Amazing Facts and Photos because I knew it would be a perfect addition to our reading time.
The Bible Explorer’s Guide lets children come up close and personal with everyday life during Bible times through photos, maps, and illustrations illuminating, people, places, objects, and buildings of the Bible. What did Noah’s Ark really look like? Who was David and whom did he fight? How did 1st century citizens of Jerusalem live? Each two-page spread is filled with images that bring history alive and drawings that help bring life to people and places that we can only read about. With fascinating, brief text and full-color captivating images, this is a reference that kids will come back to again and again. A great addition to any home or school library.
I really love the layout of this book. It is set up in a chronological organization with learning about the beginning (Adam, Eve and the garden) and working through to Paul. There are beautiful color pictures on every page with fun facts and details. There is so much information that it will take us awhile to really digest this book and fully work our way through. The book mostly features places and stories from the bible but there is also actual bible facts and information about how it was written. My only complaint is that I wish there was a clear layout of the plan of salvation because there is a missed opportunity with all the information laid out on the pages. I loved all the facts from Jesus life and the maps that really show where all the events happened. This is a well thought out book that will be a treasure in our home.
