A Giant Headache is the biblical story of David and Goliath in a rhyming, fun format. The story teaches about the courage and strength we receive from God when we trust in him completely. Each page is beautifully illustrated and includes scripture references from 1 Samuel 17:1-49.
The Big Flood is the biblical story of Noah and the Ark in a rhyming, fun format. The story teaches about how much faith Noah had to build such a big boat to carry so many animals in a flood only God told him about. Each page is beautifully illustrated and includes scripture references from Genesis 6 – 9.
The books end with a Salvation page for your child to fill out with their name for a personal commitment to Christ.
I don’t read and review many children’s books as I have no children and feel I can’t give a proper review on them; but these two children books are from the Bible and you can’t go wrong with it. This one review is for both A Giant Headache and The Big Flood. They are both written by Paul Gulley and illustrated by Delores Gully, a husband/wife team.
The beginning of each story mentions the book and verses of the Bible the story is from. The sentences are short and rhyme, which makes the books fun. The stories are written where young children can understand what is going on. The illustrations are bright and colorful with attention to detail. They will definitely appeal to children.
A Giant Headache also shows children how David stood up for what he believes and facing adversity. Headache can also be used as a lesson against bullying.
The Big Flood also shows children to listen to God despite the unknown (“What is rain?”)and to work together. It also shows that God will take care of you, never leave you, and to trust in Him.
Both books end with a Salvation page where children can learn the ABC prayer and mention John 3:16 for accepting Christ to begin their walk with God.
These books will serve as a great outreach and introduction to some of the Bible stories for young children.
Special thanks to the publisher Broadstreet Publishing Group for granting me copies of both books via NetGalley.
