My thoughts-

I really had a lot of fun with Bible Stories Painting Book 2.  It was so much fun watching C (girl, age 8) with her paintbrush, deciding what color she wanted to paint one of the illustrations.  B (boy, age 9) was interested in the story, but not the painting. 

C and I spent time together painting the illustrations.  It was a great time to bond and to discuss the Bible story in greater detail.  As we were painting I was glad to see that the paints did not show through on the other pages.

I liked the short sentences, because it really did leave the story up for discussion between the parent and child.  The shorter sentences are great for younger children with a shorter attention span.

I recommend Bible Stories Painting Book 2, by Juliet David.

Here is what the children had to say:

B- It was o.k.  The pictures were great.  Each page had very few words to tell the story.  It needed more words for somebody my age.  It was very cool that there were paint palettes in the book.  All you had to do was add water and the paints were usable.

It was o.k. for kids my age if you like to paint.

C- I liked the illustrations.  I liked painting it.  It’s good for kids my age and younger and older.
