About the Author-

Juliet David lives in London with her family. She has written Bible activity books and children’s stories. She enjoys traveling to Israel and other Bible lands.

My thoughts-

This was a cute book that was refreshing, because three of the five stories came from the New Testament.  It’s nice to read stories that aren’t usually in young children’s Bible story books.  My children and I enjoyed the unique stories, instead of ones like Jonah or Adam and Eve.

The three New Testament stories were excellent choices, because they show young children how important faith in Jesus is and how Jesus has helped people.  My favorite story was about Jairus, because of his faith in Jesus and the pop-up illustration of his daughter sitting up in bed.

I would highly recommend My Pop-Up Bible Stories as a gift for others or as a basic Bible study for young children.  Enjoy this book today!

What C (girl, age five, first grade) Liked and Disliked: I liked it.  It was good for kids my age.  I liked everything about it.
