Children love to doodle and these pocket sized editions of the Bible Doodle Book encourage youngster’s imaginations as they follow fun page prompts to complete unfinished drawings that provide hours of fun entertainment.
Incomplete pictures and sentence prompts begin with the story of creation and travel through the Old and New Testaments. Bible story prompts include the story of creation, Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, Daniel, Joseph, Mary, the birth of Jesus and many, many more.
For example, the incomplete picture of the Ten Commandments includes two large flat-faced stones. The story prompt says, “God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, doodle an image for each commandment. (Exodus 20)
Another is that of Balaam’s donkey. The story prompt says: “Balaam’s donkey saw an Angel of the Lord that Balaam could not see. Complete this scene.” The Angel of the Lord is the missing part of the picture for children to draw.
On the last page children see a house with a pitch roof, chimney and the question: “What does the House of the Lord look like to you?” Youngsters fill the house with windows and doors, perhaps a minister standing at the door to welcome those who enter.
Children enjoy doodling and these pocket books are the perfect size for them to carry or for mom to drop in her purse to keep youngsters from getting bored while they wait; whether in traffic, the doctors, dentist or any kind of appointment. An added benefit for children is while they doodle about Bible stories, the doodling reinforces stories they have learned.
The books come in two covers—a bright spring blue or an eye-catching green—which make them easy to tell apart if children from the same family use them. Either would make an excellent gift.
