The Christmas Story: The Brick Bible for Kids Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Santa, sleigh bells, mistletoe, reindeer, and presents: these are the tell-tale signs of Christmas. But for Christians, December 25 is also the time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and what better way to introduce your kids to the story of the Saviors birth than through LEGO!

Every year, children of all ages revisit the scene in Bethlehem with Joseph, Mary, the three wise men, the angels and shepherds, and the baby Jesus, swaddled and lying in a manger. Kids will love seeing the story of Christmas played out using their favorite toys. Brendan Powell Smith, author of The Brick Bible for Kids series—beginning with Noahs Ark—creates a magical “brick” world around the simplified text of the Immaculate Conception, the census, the guiding star high above Bethlehem, and the promise one little baby brings to the Christians of the world. This important Christmas story is sure to be the perfect holiday gift and a book for families to cherish for years to come.

Review:

"Smith (Noah's Ark: The Brick Bible) retells another Bible story using Lego bricks, beginning with the Annunciation and ending with young Jesus and his parents settling in Nazareth. Each page contains a Lego illustration, with the author's customized details (the three magi, for example, wear head coverings, and one sports a snowy-white beard), and a few lines of straightforward text. A preface by Rev. Wanda Lundy of New York Theological Seminary suggests ways for parents to discuss the tougher aspects of the story, such as Herod's order to kill all children under the age of two ('Always be honest... simple and brief answers are perfectly adequate'). An activity at the end encourages rereading and attention to detail. An offbeat winner for Lego fans. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The greatest story of all time illustrated through kids’ favorite toy!
