Book Review: Kregel Blog Tour. The Time of Jesus.
The Time of Jesus
About the Book: Keep curious young minds busy with these detailed depictions of Bible history, and a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page.
Jesus took his message to all kinds of people in all kinds of places—from the shores of Lake Galilee to the bustling streets of Jerusalem. This book takes readers right into the world that he knew, with appealing illustrations and flaps that open to reveal all kinds of fascinating details. Brief text explains the setting, and references events and stories from Jesus’ life. The book covers the first Christmas, illustrations of a synagogue and carpenter’s workshop in Nazareth, fishing in Capernaum, farming and shepherding in the hills of Galilee, homes of the wealthy and everyday people, the temple in Jerusalem, the way of the cross, and the first Easter.
My Review: The time of Jesus is a lift-the-flap discovery book that gives a brief explanation of Jesus’ journey from His birth to His death and resurrection. The story starts off in Bethlehem as Mary and Joseph arrival in the town looking for shelter. Jesus’ early days at home in Nazareth going to the Synagogue and how He became a preacher and choose His disciples to help him spread the message of God’s love and forgiveness. Jesus sometimes got invited to the homes of the rich who were intrigued by His preaching, one such person was Zacchaeus, the tax collector. Another important story in the book was the most important festival of the Jewish faith known as the Passover. The pictures show the people selling and buying at the temple in Jerusalem. At the Roman trial, religious leaders did not like Jesus or his preaching so they decided to plot His death, by having Him arrested and sentence to death. Jesus was crucified with two criminals on a hill named Calvary. The women visited the tomb but His body was gone.
The book does take you on a journey revealing all kinds of fascinating details behind the flaps. Each flap tells a behind the scene story which will make it more fun for the kids. The illustrations are colorful and bright. Great for Sunday school teaching and school library.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
