Two stories in one book! The Little Bible Heroes flip-over book series is an easy to read and fun to look at retelling of biblical stories in a way that even the youngest of children can understand.
Little Bible Heroes is back with two new adaptations, this time taking us back to the conquest of the Promised Land and the stories of Joshua and Rahab. Victoria Kovacs continues to masterfully break down the biblical story into words and ideas that a preschooler can understand without losing the heart of the message.
The Joshua story focuses on the battle of Jericho and Joshua’s leadership of the Israelites into the Promised Land. It brings up the themes of God’s presence and help and how we can do anything through the power of God.
Rahab’s story comes in the middle of the Joshua storyline, something that you can point out to your children. The two spies mentioned in Joshua’s story are the same two spies in Rahab’s story! Rahab hides the spies and, in return, is spared from the destruction. Kovacs even mentions that Rahab becomes the ancestor of King David!
(Quick mostly-irrelevant theological note. Kovacs specifically says that Rahab is the great-great-great grandma of David. Keen thinkers will realize that there is an almost 400 year period from Rahab to David, which means one of two things: it is possible that every person in these generations lived long lives and had children in their 80s and 90s, or there is a generational gap here. Either is possible.)
As always, the Little Bible Heroes stories do well at lending themselves to interaction in the storyline. Ask, ask, ask questions. Don’t just read the words, get your child to interact with them and seek out their thoughts and have a conversation with them. It is so important to cultivate faith at a young age and the Little Bible Heroes series is perfect for doing just that.
