My Story: Joseph & My Story David: ~ Review & Giveaway



A whole new way for kids to learn about their favorite Bible heroes!

Kids are accustomed to hearing stories about their favorite Bible heroes—but what about from the perspective of the heroes themselves? In this My Story series from Make Believe Ideas, heroes come to life as they tell kids their life stories from a first-person perspective. At the end of each book is a “Sticker Journal”. Kids can place these 45 story-themed stickers into the book, adding another element of fun!

With his coat of many colors and abundant faith, Joseph is a favorite character of many children. In My Story: Joseph, the hero chronicles his amazing life that children treasure from the Bible. Kids will learn from Joseph’s story to always trust God, no matter what the circumstance, because He will see them through.

Children have long heard the story of David and Goliath, but they’ve never heard it straight from the young hero’s mouth. In My Story: David, the young shepherd with enormous faith tells kids about his decision to fight the Philistine soldier mocking the tribes of Israel. Children will learn that trust in God helps them to do great things, no matter their size!

My thoughts:

What an appealing book for young readers! The pictures, graphics and typeset are designed to get and keep the attention of your little one. The story is told from the perspective of the main character and begins with an introduction of all the main people in the story. 

I appreciated the way the author used language that is easily understood by children yet clearly conveyed the message of the original text. At the very back of the book is a section entitled 'My Sticker Journal' and it helps your child retell the story using stickers to recreate the setting. I thought it was a great way to reinforce what had been taught during the reading. Extra stickers are included for additional use with your child. 

If you are looking for a fresh telling of an age old story I think you would do well to consider this book. I'm sure that it is going to become worn out in our house!
