My thoughts: The BRICK BUILDERS ILLUSTRATED BIBLE is a Bible-based storybook using popular building bricks (such as Lego) to illustrate it. There are twenty-one stories set in the New Testament (mostly about Jesus) and fifteen set in the Old Testament (mostly Genesis). The stories are very simply told and some of the color combinations make it hard for older eyes to read. This book has a hard cover, a gift page and the pages are stiff which might make it difficult for children to tear. I don't like the smudging of biblical facts, and some of the building brick people are scary looking. Great for fans of children's building bricks. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
“The Brick Builders Illustrated Bible uses the popularity of brick-building pieces to engage children with more than 35 beloved Bible stories from the Old and New Testament,” states the back jacket of this children’s book. ~ What ~ This two-hundred-and-twenty-four-page hardbound book targets young children from four to eight years old. The book covers thirty-six known stories taken from the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible. With no overtly scary or violent scenes, it would best be read out loud to non-readers or beginner readers who like to look at pictures due to their limited reading comprehension level. The New International Reader’s Version of the Bible is referenced. After an ownership page, table of contents, and introduction, the book contains fifteen stories from the Old Testament and twenty-one from the New Testament, with each being four to eight pages long. Using the popular colorful toy bricks, complete scenes with little plastic people who have expressive faces are on all pages that relate to the stories. The end of each chapter has a highlighted Building Block section that can be applied to the reader. ~ Why ~ Our almost three-year-old grandson loves Legos and plays with the people characters often. This chapter book that depicts illustrations using the little bricks has short, to-the-point stories written in a positive way. Although not all the stories provide all the facts, they generalize the events. Some of the stories cover creation, Noah’s ark, the Tower of Babel, Elijah’s altar, Jonah, Jesus’s birth, His many miracles, and His death and resurrection. I appreciated it includes a story about believers of Christ being in Heaven. Some of the characters such as a happy Abraham, pharaoh’s daughter, pregnant Mary, sheep, and angels are engaging. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not want to promote teaching a child about Bible stories will pass on this book. Some may be not like that the stories are commercialized by using the iconic bricks, but they may be enjoyed by young Lego enthusiasts. It may be too advanced for beginner readers due to the two and three syllable words. Some may not realize this is not a fully-illustrated Bible but many stories. ~ Wish ~ I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. I found some of the liberties taken overly enhance the stories such as Jonah soaring through the air when he was spat out of the fish and the added conversations. ~ Want If you are looking for a book of simplified stories from the Bible that cater to those who love to build with mini toy blocks, this would be a good selection for a young one who is just learning about God’s Word but be aware it is not completely accurate. Thanks to ZBlogSquad for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
As a mom, grandmother, and counselor, I really appreciate books like this. Sturdy, hardbound copies of the Bible that are appropriate for kids, are hard to come by. Brick Builders really sets the standard for quality publications that hold up well to young fingers. The pages are bright, colorful and printed on heavy duty paper. The artwork is fantastic, drawing the eye to every little detail, including shadows from the sun! There are over 35 stories from the Bible, told in a way that is easy to read and discuss. Each story ends with a "building block" which can be used to further discussion or just to impress the lesson learned from the story. From Genesis to Revelations, this children's Bible covers the stories that have stood through the test of time in a child friendly format . There are scripture prompts as well which allow for in depth scripture study when a child is old enough. This book is also appropriate for nurseries, children's classes, and counselor offices. It also is a great size for travel, easily fitting into a backpack or book bag. I can't resist saying once more that the artwork in this Bible storybook is amazing.
