Reviews - What do customers think about Five Loaves and a Couple of Fish?
Great illustrations and an encouraging message! Apr 18, 2008
This book uses rhyme to tell the story of Jesus feeding the 5000. A little boy's lunch was miraculously multiplied when Jesus prayed. Readers are encouraged to "... give Jesus your all and have lots of faith." The illustrations, done in a color block style, are bold and filled with contrast. The overall effect is fun and inviting.
What I Like: I love the illustrations! The size is great, too. At 7 x 7", this is a wonderful size for cuddling with a little one or taking in a diaper bag. As always, I appreciate how the author explains this is a "true" story. Finally, I like the application: "God can use you to do miracles, too!"
What I Dislike: The subtitle says "a story of faith and giving," but the text doesn't emphasize this. The boy's role is quite minor; it just says he was there and Jesus took his food to perform a miracle. Also, the rhyme isn't perfect in a couple spots.
Overall Rating: Upper side of Good.
Age Appeal: The publisher says 6 and under, though I think it's most appropriate for 3 and under.
