Two stories in one book! The Little Bible Heroes flip-over book series is an easy to read and fun to look at retelling of biblical stories in a way that even the youngest of children can understand.
Easter/Christmas covers the two major stories of the Gospel: the Incarnation and the Resurrection. It’s a perfect pairing that will go a long way in teaching your child the message of Christianity.
Each story is 14 pages long, with text on 7 pages and 1-4 sentences on each of those pages. Author Victoria Kovacs uses simple words, allowing new readers to work through this story on their own, sounding out the words as they go. Because the story contains “Bible words” like disciples and resurrected, you may want to read through with your child to explain those terms.
The Easter story focuses on Mary Magdalene at her experience at the tomb. I thought this was a nice, personal touch because it personalizes what can sometimes be an overwhelming story filled with detail. This makes the story focused on one person’s response to the resurrection.
The Christmas story is just as fun, although it does commit the cardinal sin of having the Magi at the manger. That’s a pet peeve of mine. It’s a common—almost universal—portrayal, but does not fit the historical account.
The illustrations by Mike Krome are vibrantly colored and makes good use of shadow and shapes to draw young readers in.
Overall, I love the idea and the execution of this series and this specific title. It’s often difficult to simplify the grand stories of Scripture in terms our littlest ones can understand and B&H Kids has done a great job with that.
