Moses and the Very Big Rescue tells the story of Moses in Exodus in a fun new way with a counting lesson. Little children learn about Pharoah, Moses and the plagues that God sent to get Pharoah to listen to him and let the people go.... continue reading
A delightfully fresh re-telling of the Israelites’ escape from Egypt, this book is perfect for little hearts and minds. The story is clearly told and beautifully illustrated, leaving nothing out of the Biblical tale whilst making it vividly understandable.
The book is aimed at 2-5 year olds, and it’s very well judged for that age group. The repeated phrases exchanged by Moses and Pharoah are ideal for preschoolers to learn and say along, and the countdown is integral but fun! An engaging tale that amuses and educates - parents and kids will love it. I for one can’t wait to read the other titles in the series.
I gave this book to my friend Michelle for her children (aged 6, 4 & 2). She reported: "Tim (6, nearly 7) says he loves these books...[Deborah and the Very Big Battle; Moses and the Very Big Rescue] Why? I asked. “Because they are true mummy.”
Rachel and Caleb have yet to read them as Tim has read them in bed every night.
I loved the formulaic recipe Engage (put your finger to your lips/ear in Deborah) (counting backwards in Moses)
Repeat, repeat, repeat the message
And the praise song at the end.
I think the counting down in Moses was my best.
For Bible story books, they are probably the most engaging Bible storybook with depth not just glossing over the actual story to make a nice bedtime story."
