A fun activity book bringing the Christmas story to life. Based on God's Big Promises Bible Storybook.

Using vibrant illustrations and simple, faithful teaching from God’s Big Promises Bible Storybook, this activity book features over 60 stickers and 16 pages of puzzles, games, and other activities.

It will provide hours of fun for your family, bringing the Christmas story to life for young children.

Youngsters will enjoy the angel visiting Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, the birth of Jesus, and the visits of the shepherds and the magi.

Perfect for kids aged 3-7.

This sixteen-page sticker and activity book supplements the God’s Big Promises Bible Storybook. It also works as a standalone, since Carl Laferton shares the story of the Nativity throughout the book, interspersing short, kid-friendly paragraphs around Jennifer Davison’s bright, bold illustrations. The narrative is complete and self-contained, covering some of the same material from the Bible storybook without making references that direct people to the other book.

Laferton splits up the story into distinct sections, such as “An Angel Visits Mary” and “Jesus is Born.” Each section is two pages long, featuring that part of the story, illustrations and sticker spots, and other activities such as mazes, words to trace, and a simple dot-to-dot. This book is for kids ages three to seven, and there’s a good range of different activities. The stickers are all in the center of this staple-bound book, and they are bright, colorful, and fun. It is also clear where each of them goes, since kids are supposed to place the correct stickers over the soft, light-colored images on each page. The stickers are technically reusable, but they start curling after you peel them up, so they won’t last very long. Also, some kids will need help peeling up the asymmetrical stickers to avoid tearing them.

God’s Big Promises: The First Christmas: Sticker and Activity Book will appeal to families and Sunday school teachers looking for a fun activity book that engages kids with the Christmas story. This has high-quality, engaging text and illustrations, and the stickers and activities are fun, but this is most likely a one-and-done activity, since the stickers don’t have much longevity. Also, even though the glossy paper makes it easier for people to reuse the stickers, the glossy pages will work best with pencil, since crayons won’t always show up and ink is likely to smear. This is a great educational Christian resource, but people should consider the price with a single-use expectation.
