The lovely people at Butterfly products sent us 4 lovely books to review. We love to review things but most of all we love books. We read them at home and then I went ahead and sent the books onto the respective teachers - grade 3 (Times table), grade 1 (Adding up and Taking away) and grade 0 (In the Beginning).
What I loved about it was that it gives the most popular stories in Genesis each enough space to tell it well enough - other than most children's Bibles that tell these stories very briefly. For instance the story about Noah and the Ark is told over 4 double pages in 4 episodes.
The teacher was totally swept away by the children's enthusiasm for the beautiful illustrations. She mentioned that they all loved it and asked to look at it again and again. She also loved the length of each story saying that it was ideal for that level of school - long enough but not too long.
Below is my favourite illustration from the book (Wonderful World) and Mr L our grade 0's favourite (A Brand new Start) to show just how beautiful they are.
Butterfly books are sold at Makro, Pick n Pay and Dischem and at various mall retailers.
