Book Review: Kregel Blog Tour. Bible Stories Gone Crazy!
Bible Stories Gone Crazy!
About the Book: Eight Bible stories are depicted in bright color and comic, cartoony illustrations. There is a sentence or two explaining the scene at the top, and then details to spot, mistakes to find, and questions to answer along the sides of the picture, such as, “Did Noah’s workmen REALLY have power tools?” and “How many rabbits are in the picture?” Children will love scouring the illustrations to find the answers and spot more amusing details in the busy artwork of Emiliano Migliardo. The stories are Noah and His Great Ark, Moses Crossing the Red Sea, Joshua and the Fall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Big Fish, Feeding the 5,000, and Man Through the Roof. – See more at: http://www.kregel.com/childrens-activities/bible-stories-gone-crazy/#sthash.fEFUekwK.dpuf
My Review: The Bible Stories Gone Crazy consist of series of stories like Noah and his Great Ark, Moses ad the Miracle Escape, Joshua Destroys Jericho, Daniel in the Pit of Lions, Jonah and the Monster Fish, Jesus Feeds a Huge Crowd and the Man Through the Roof!. Each illustrations depicting dozens or more people doing a variety of amusing things at a given location with bible verses and questions. Like, Did Noah have glass windows in the ark? Can you find Moses? What’s he carrying? Who gave Jesus his lunch? And so on.
Children will not only enjoy reading this book but enjoy taking an adventure with each charater as they make their way finding all the artist’s jokes and deliberate mistakes. This book is comically illustrated by Emiliano Migliardo.

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.
