My Bible Sticker Backpack

by Chris Scollen


Shaped, stapled A4 pbk
Price: £5.99
Publisher:Authentic Media
Published:September 2013
"Over 1,000 stickers" announces this book on the front cover. Some are for sticking in the correct place, over the correct shape silhouette; others can be used anywhere. There are activities galore - finding the correct stickers; mazes; colouring pages; using grids to copy pictures. As well as the activities the book also has stories running through it, telling the most famous Old Testament stories then finishing with the birth of Jesus. Though there is no great depth to the stories it was refreshing to find a book like this that focused mostly on the Old Testament.

The book itself is shaped like a backpack, with a hole at the top to make a handle for carrying it. This is a great addition - the stickers and activities make the book ideal for taking out and about and the handle means it's easier for little hands to carry around! Definitely recommended; we've used it very effectively before and even during church services.
