We just finished three days at the Long Beach Homeschooling Conference. What a wonderful group of people and great resources. We especially loved a booth called The Picture Smart Bible. What an easy way to learn a detailed overview of each book in the Bible.
Using a master drawing of each Bible book, teachers illustrate key concepts. There is a “Script” for the teachers to follow regarding what to say. No commentaries needed: the “prep” is done for you. The students have a “student sheet” and as the teacher reads through the script the student and teacher complete the dotted line drawing and then add color.
Basically it is a way for kids to draw their way through the Bible without having any artistic skills.
At the end of the survey, kids have created their own illustrated Bible. Wow, what a special memory that they can reference throughout their lifetime. As they draw they are “etching” in their minds the stories in each Bible book. It covers every book in the Bible from Genesis thru Revelation.
Again, we can’t say enough wonderful things about this product. Hope you check it out at www.picture-smartbible.com.
If you like what you read, check out our children’s book, Hooked on the Book, on this website. It is great for parents and kids because it provides the Big Story of God’s miraculous plan for His children in all 66 books in the Bible including colorful illustrations, rhymes and a surprise on every page.
