Coloring and activity book based around The Prisoners, the Earthquake, and the Midnight Song Bible storybook.
This coloring and activity book contains 32 pages of coloring, puzzles, mazes, and activities for children 4-8 years old.
It is based around the Bible storybook written by Bob Hartman and illustrated by Catalina Echeverri: a fun and compelling retelling from Acts 16 of how a Philippian jailer and his family learned the wonderful truth about Jesus Christ.
This activity book supplements the Tales That Tell the Truth storybook The Prisoners, the Earthquake, and the Midnight Song. The activity book includes text from Bob Hartman and some of Catalina Echeverri’s original illustrations, which appear as black-and-white drawings that kids can color. The book tells the story of Acts 16, showing how Paul and Silas’s worship of God during their imprisonment witnessed to the Phillippian jailer and led to his salvation.
The Prisoners, the Earthquake, and the Midnight Song Coloring and Activity Book includes mazes, wordsearches, matching puzzles, and other activities, with lots to color on every page. Most of the puzzles are fairly simple, and this is good for a broad age range. The puzzles will give younger kids a good challenge, and older kids who can solve them more quickly will likely enjoy the level of detail in the coloring pages. Although the book is short and kids will complete it quickly, it is priced accordingly and makes a nice extra to go with the original book. It also retells the story sufficiently to work as a standalone.
Some parents will want to be aware that this book includes an illustration and description of the jailer despairing and preparing to commit suicide. The image shows the jailer crying and holding his sword across his lap, and although this Bible story shares a message of hope, joy, and salvation, families who have a trauma history related to suicide may want to approach this with caution or choose a different activity book from the series.
