Pretty Good; Tell's the Story of Jesus' Life Jun 7, 2007
This 93-page coloring book has at least a few sentences of storytelling below each page telling step by step the story of Jesus' life from Bethlehem to the cross, resurrection, and ascension.
The drawings are pretty simple and appropriate for coloring by kids of all ages who would enjoy coloring. The stories are told in simplistic language and attempting to keep the message of the story simply. At times I found myself wondering why various stories were skipped or why various details were left out. But I think that in general this was done with good discernment.
My primary complaint is that there is very little from the end of Jesus' life. The Lord's Supper is skipped. The one page from Gethsemane is somewhat disappointing. There is nothing about the arrest or trial and only one picture of the cross. And post-cross there is one picture from the tomb and one from the ascension. This is very disproportionate with the detail given to Jesus' earlier life. It almost seems like the author had a 100 page limit and found himself rushing at the end to make sure that it all fit. I hope that if this is ever revised, more detail is given to this portion of Jesus' life, especially considering the importance of the cross and resurrection to Jesus' life.
Nevertheless, if you are looking for a good coloring book to walk your children through the story of Jesus' life get this, recognizing that you will have to do your own teaching on a lot when it comes to the end of Jesus' life.
