My Very First Noah's Ark Playtime Review

I am participating in a Kregel Publication Blog Tour for My Very First Noah’s Ark Playtime Activity Book with Stickers by Lois Rock.  This 16 page activity book is for very young children that teaches the Noah’s Ark bible story.  As the title suggests, it’s an interactive book with many stickers that help teaches this popular story.  Children can develop their pre-reading skills in the areas of letter sounds and counting skills. They are also working on their fine motor, identification and matching skills. So, as they learn about God and His promise to Noah they are also working on their cognitive and manipulative skills!  Great for spiritual and academic learning.

For a parent or teacher who selects this activity book, it’s mostly to teach the children about this popular bible story.  What I do appreciate about this book is that it did NOT include God’s displeasure at the pervasive wickedness of mankind and how he intended to wipe them from the face of the earth.  This book is geared towards young children who may become fearful of God’s action of flooding the earth which meant many lives ended.  God’s intent was not to destroy man but to destroy the wickedness and sin. This is a hard concept for little ones to understand, therefore, I appreciate how this book glossed over that truth.  Older children may wonder at what happened to all the other people but younger ones probably will not.

In the middle of Noah’s Ark Playtime book is a gingerbread recipe with directions to shape it into an ark.  Totally fun for kids and it’s easy to make.  Here are the ingredients.

The simple recipe.
 My version cooled and decorated.
There are countless ways of decorating this fun cookie.

Noah’s Ark cookie that was very yummy!

The only critique I have is that the stickers are not reusable.  Of course, the child can always read the book or use the pictures as a prompt to retell the story.  Plus the many stickers will not be used in one sitting but it would have been nice if they could have been used repeatedly.

I was given a complimentary copy of Noah’s Ark Playtime for my honest review. Thank you Kregel Publications for inviting me to participate in your blog tour.

Blessings,
Noreen
