"Bake Through The Bible" by Susan Bentley-Taylor and Bekah Moore

Children like to "see" things from Bible stories, which is why the use of pictures and models, anything hands on, is so important. I can remember wanting to know what manna tasted like, or unleavened bread, or any of the other foods mentioned in the Bible. In this new book for children, Susan Bentley-Taylor and Bekah Moore give children the opportunity of not only learning some Bible truths, but also baking something to remind them of that truth.

Mothers know that keeping a child's attention on a lesson can be challenging at best. These two mothers put 20 Bible lessons together with an activity children love - baking and eating - to keep the learning fun. Here is a sampling of cooking activities from the press release.

"Cooking activities include:
- Sparkly promise cookies to remember God’s wonderful promises to Abraham
- Happy crepe faces in response to God’s promise to send His Rescuer and Forever-King
- Spiral tuna wraps for a picnic that links with Jesus’ miracle of feeding thousands
- An empty bread tomb with Easter dips to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection"

This is a really fun book! I enjoyed trying the recipes, remembering how my now grown sons loved to cook/bake something new and then eat it. The cookies are fun and can be in different shapes, have sprinkles, or have a dirty/clean side. (Get the book to find out which is which!)This is a great book for parents or grandparents, and will make for some great memories! I received my review copy from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review.
