Review: Bible Numbers
Such a simple idea but such a good one! Alison Brown has taken Bible stories that fit with the numbers 1 – 12 and firstly painted a picture of the story and told it very briefly, then repeated the picture on the opposite page for the child to colour themselves. Finally, they are asked to colour in the appropriate number of images at the foot of the page. After this, Alison asks that the children draw a line from the number to the correct picture to see if they remember them individually, then finally encourages them to draw items from each story in the order they would appear in the Bible. A lovely idea that my children and grandchildren would have enjoyed but now I shall have to find someone younger to pass it on to!
