Lift the Flap Bible (Candle Tiny Tots) by Karen Williamson & illustrations by Louise Anglicas

ISBN: 9781781281307
Hardcover/Board $12.99
About the book: What's under the flaps? Find out in this collection of eight very simple Bible stories in a large cased board book format. Each story is told across a double-page spread and there are flaps on every page. Bright, quirky illustrations full of wit and color from Louise Anglicas are perfect for this engaging introduction to Bible stories.

Stories are: Noah and the Ark, Moses and the Bulrushes, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Great Fish, Born in a Stable, Boy with Loaves and Fishes, The Lost Sheep, and Man Lowered Through the Roof.

My thoughts:  Lift the Flap Bible is a wonderful beginning Bible.  Its target age is 10+ months – 4 years of age. The stories included in this book are some that most people are familiar with:  Noah and the Ark; Moses and the Basket; Daniel and the Lions; Jonah and the Great Fish; and the birth of Jesus  -- just to name the most familiar.  The pictures are very simple, but quite colorful and just plain fun.  The pages are strong, thick cardboard and are easy for a toddler to turn.  The flaps are also easy for a toddler to open. However, I’ve seen very few flap books where the flaps were able to withstand the constant bending by little hands.  

I sat down with my 4-yr old granddaughter to read this book and she absolutely loved it! After we read the book together, she then sat alone for quite a while and went back through the book.  We have several “beginner bibles” in our book collection, but this Lift the Flap Bible has moved to the top of her favorites.  She has a newborn brother and she actually tried to “read” the book to him!  Thanks for a great little book!
