5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Bible Stories Painting Book 1 and Bible Stories Painting Book 2 are two fantastic painting books that are easy to use with no mess involved! Each book has sixteen scenes from the Old and New Testaments with a simple line of text explaining the picture. Simply dip your brush in water, wipe over the paint pallets on the inside covers and fill in the illustrations with bright, bold colors!

MY REVIEW -
Love, love, love! Honestly - I just love all of these Children's books by Kregel! I have not gotten one that I did not love! I remember having those "paint with water" books when I was a kid! They didn't paint very good and the paint looked very washed out. It really was paint with water! LOL
Boy these have really come a long way since then. I tried it and the color is very vivid. And there are lots of color pallets. 
There are actually two of these fold out paint pages, one in the front and one in the back of the book.
The coloring pages are fun, big, cute, and tell a story (I really like this illustrator).
This is where I tried the paint - you can see how bright the green is, and I didn't use much!


 Another huge thumbs up from Kregel Publishing! I will probably just get every children's book that comes out by them!
I highly recommend this if you have kids, grandkids (expecting future grandkids... someday  :-/ ) or if you do daycare! Or buy it as a gift, maybe a birthday party. It is just too good to pass up!

Thank you Kregel Publishing for sending me this gorgeous paint book to look at and review!
