Reviews - What do customers think about Moses' Big Adventure: A Lift-the-Flap Bible Book?
Lots of flaps Apr 28, 2008
This book about Moses will entertain your toddler because there are SO MANY flaps to open. The flaps do tend to distract from the story because the 'search' is not exactly related to the story.
Interactive fun with solid Bible teaching! Mar 14, 2008
This sturdy boardbook tells the life of Moses in five sections: Moses in the basket; the burning bush; the plagues in Egypt; the parting of the Red Sea; the deliverance of the Ten Commandments. Each "chapter" is told through four short lines of rhyming verse. Children are then asked to "find five ..." animals (turtles, mice, cats, crabs or lizards) behind the flaps. The book contains more than 45 flaps for interactive exploration.
The illustrations are vibrant and inviting. Some of the Biblical story is actually told through the illustrations rather than the text. For example, not all ten plagues are mentioned in the text, but readers can find the hail and darkness under one of the larger flaps on that page.
What I Like: Kids can't put it down! This book teaches the life of Moses with attractive illustrations, bright colors and interactive flaps. It also teaches counting and object permanence. References are included on each page for further study in your children's Bible. I also like that the flaps are not all the same size. Some are quite large and, when opened, extend outside the book.
What I Dislike: The rhyme isn't quite perfect in some spots. Also, the story is accurate, but it leaves some questions curious preschoolers will definitely ask. For example, if Moses was adopted by a princess, why was he living in the desert? If the king (Pharaoh) let them go, why are his soldiers chasing them in the picture?
Age Appeal: The publisher says 3 and up, but my 2 year old LOVES this book!
Overall Rating: Very Good!

Great book! Aug 5, 2006
My son received this book for his first birthday. In the last six months it's become one of his favorite books. The flaps are wonderful. I love the color, it's very vibrant. We also have the Noah book by this author. It's another favorite. The best part is we can enjoy the book together or apart, he loves to look at it on his own.
