Bibleman Bible Storybook is written by author Mike Nappa and illustrated by Dennis Edwards. The cover of this book is cushioned hardback and the book is perfect for 6-10-year-olds; both boys and girls. There is a cast of characters that lead the child through the book. Bibleman’s goal is to lead children to Christ and his weapon of choice is the Word of God. Biblegirl’s tactics are to develop Bible lessons and oppose villains. Cypher’s goal is to help kids live for Christ and his favorite slush-ez flavor is cantaloupe-bubblegum. Lastly, Melody’s favorite scripture is Colossians 3: 23-25.
What I liked most about the book are the colorful drawings, the BibleTeam Challenges, and the scripture verses placed throughout the book. What I didn’t like about the book is that the drawings for Adam and Eve partially show their nakedness while living in Eden.
The text of this book uses simple, short paragraphs. This organization is sufficient for the stories told. The literary tool used is imagery which is helpful in recalling each story. The cover portrays the story of David and Goliath just before David kills Goliath with his slingshot and one stone. There is a total of 25 stories in this book.
I recommend this storybook to children ages 6-10 and their caretakers.
