Coloring and activity book based around the Seek and Find The Very First Christmas storybook.
This coloring and activity book includes mazes, puzzles, drawing, coloring and more to keep young children amused. It will reinforce the teaching in the Seek and Find The Very First Christmas storybook.
It features the full Christmas story over eight parts, teaching children eight key truths about the birth of Jesus.
This activity book accompanies the large-format board book Seek and Find: The First Christmas, recreating some of the illustrations as coloring pages and including other activities. There are some matching, counting, drawing, and maze activities that are suitable for young children, and the coloring pages will be great for older kids because of their detail. There are also additional seek-and-find activities. The book has great age flexibility, since toddlers can scribble over the coloring pages and older kids can color in the lines and focus on the small touches. I would definitely recommend this for kids who are aging out of simplistic coloring books but aren’t yet ready for the intensity of most coloring books intended for adults.
Although this activity book supplements the seek-and-find book, it is also perfectly usable as a standalone product. Each new section includes a Scripture reference and the short summary that Sarah Parker originally wrote for that scene. Because of this, the activity book still conveys the story. Also, none of the activities require someone to have the original book on hand. That makes this especially appropriate for gift-giving. Someone like a Sunday school teacher could give out copies of the activity book without having to afford copies of the book for everyone.
I would recommend Seek and Find: The First Christmas Activity Book to families, churches, and Christian schools. It retells the Christmas story through the short summaries from the author, and the illustrations stand out even in black and white. This resource can be a great classroom activity, gift, and family activity, and it could be fun for siblings of different ages to share the book and each do the parts that they’re most interested in. I am very impressed with this, and I would encourage people to check out other activity books from The Good Book Company as well.
