Picture Book Review: My Pop-Up Bible Stories by Juliet David

Title: My Pop-Up Bible Stories
Author: Juliet David
Illustrator: Daniel Howarth
Publisher: Candle Books
Released: June 1, 2012

Book Summary:

With a pop-up scene on every page, children will cherish this selection of favorite stories from the Old and New Testaments. From the moment Baby Moses is found floating in a basket among the bulrushes to Jesus’ stilling of the storm, children will be captivated by Daniel Howarth’s remarkable illustrations as each story pops off the page.

I love pop-up books so when I had the chance to review this one I couldn’t resist.

There are only 5 bible stories in this short 10 page book.  When you try to condense a bible story to just one page of writing for a very young audience you don’t get a lot of text.  However the stories in this book are all familiar so the limited text works.  And really when you are “reading” a pop-up book it is usually not for the story but rather to see the pop-ups.

These pop-ups are not interactive (my favorite kind) but were still intricate and well done.  My six year old daughter enjoyed the book and has claimed it as her own.

Rating: 4 Stars – Great book for a younger audience
