Brick Builder’s Illustrated Bible
By Emily Danner and Anthony Evans
This is literally the best children’s Bible book, hands down!!!
It’ beautiful and bright—the pages are FILLED with bold, colorful Lego-esque illustrations, perfectly captivating the attention of any kid (or big kid…or adult) that loves Legos. From Genesis through Revelation, the Gospel truth is broken down into easy to read narratives, along with simple “Building Block” applications that allow for the Bible story to be processed practically. My son, Milo, is too young (11 months) to really grasp the truth behind these story-time readings…but he for sure isn’t too young to enjoy this book for its illustrations. I also think it’s amazing and important for him to engage with the miracles and words of God start now, that way he is able to see that from a young age that God moves in mighty and beautiful ways.
Also – I cannot say ENOUGH that I love how different skin colors are featured in this book. This has long since been a problem with children’s Bibles. Traditionally, EVERY character is portrayed as Caucasian. That doesn’t happen in this book. Seriously, the cover—Sampson looks like The Rock. Jesus is a brunette, Mary is tan, and on page 139 we’ve got a man with skin the color of dark ebony — AND lots of women that illustrated in the “followings” of Jesus.
A beautiful nod to today’s need for a more accurate and diverse representation for God’s people—both past and present.
The one (and only) point of improvement I have for this book is that some of the Bible stories and “Building Block” pieces that are featured on the bright blue “block” pages are kind of hard to read (color wise). Other than that — SO beautiful.
