To our beloved teachers and parents,
Research has shown that vibrant, colorful pictures not only help stimulate the attention of preschoolers, but also stimulates their brains in general to help them develop their knowledge. Because of that, educators always try to make the best use of pictures as an excellent way to educate children. Moreover, meaningful stories that are illustrated are much more likely to leave an impression on the reader, and they will keep those stories with them their whole lives. If you as teachers and parents are looking to combine the two elements above to help your children learn and remember stories from the Bible, then you’ve picked the right book!
Getting to Know My Bible through Pictures Activity Book is one of the publications that belong to the SU Team’s materials for preschoolers.
The book provides five different activities that are well-matched to their age. These activities include:
- Coloring pages
- Practice drawing
- Completing pictures
- Solving mazes
- Spotting the differences / similarities
The pictures used in this book are developed from another of SU’s publications, God’s Great Story, a storybook that explains the Bible from Genesis all the way to Revelation through fifty-two key words. Because of this, we believe that this material doesn’t just offer some good and creative activities, but will also help our children connect with the Bible in an easy-to-understand and effective way. We hope that this book of useful activities will give your children an interesting experience and leave them with a good impression of the Bible.
Because this is a book for preschool-aged children 3-6 years old, most of them won’t know how to read. They will need help from their parents to complete these lessons. By doing these activities with your children, it gives us the opportunity to explain more about the meanings of the lesson and / or about the Bible story related to it.
Sounds pretty interesting, right parents?
