Look Inside the Time of Jesus by Lois Rock
This lift-the-flap discovery book is designed for 5-7 year old's but my 3 year old absolutely loves it so I think it's perfect for younger audiences as well, as long as they are big enough not to rip the flaps.
Each page goes through a different scene in the time and life of Jesus. Readers get to visit where Jesus was born, where He lived in Nazareth, where He taught in Galilee and in the farmlands, and even the temple in Jerusalem. There is a short paragraph included for each page, and multiple lit-the-flaps describing what went on in that place. The book begins with Jesus' birth and ends with His crucifixion, burial and the empty tomb and risen Jesus.
I think this cute book includes just the right amount of words for each page and is the perfect length for a 3-7 year old. The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching, and my 3 year old was entertained for quite a while just lifting the flaps on her own. I rate this book as 5 stars.
I received this book for free from Kregel Publishers in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
