Kregel Publishing Presents: Bible Stories Painting Book 2 by Juliet David, Simon Abbott

Bible Stories Painting Book 1 and Bible Stories Painting Book 2 are two fantastic painting books that are easy to use with no mess involved! Each book has sixteen scenes from the Old and New Testaments with a simple line of text explaining the picture. Simply dip your brush in water, wipe over the paint pallets on the inside covers and fill in the illustrations with bright, bold colors!
Juliet David has written many children’s stories and Bible activity books. Her other interests include painting, music, and travel to Israel and other Bible lands. This experienced author lives in London with her family. 
 Simon Abbott was born in Leicestershire, England, in 1967, grew up in Devon, and now lives in rural Suffolk, with his wife Sally, and their three boys. Simon holds a BTec National Diploma in Art and Design, and BA in Jewelry and Silversmithing. His artistic influences include Roger Hargreaves' Mr Men books and Sandra Boynton. Simon describes his work as fun, fresh and happy.  
My Review: 
The boys cannot leave this book alone, was so happy that two palettes are included in this book. There are pages are perforated, and it made it so easy to share the book.
We read the verse under each of the pages, and spoke about what the picture is about, and then each of my guys set out painting. They had a wonderful time enjoying this, and didn't want to put it away. Tomorrow is another day, and know that they will be asking for more.
What a great way to spend a cold winter day, or a rainy one. Enjoy!!

I received this book through Kregel for review purposes, and was not required to give a positive review.
