Rumble, Zap, Pow (Review)

Rumble! Zap! Pow! by Diane Short and Illustrated by Luke Daab is a sweet and fun little Bible that packs a quick punch in a short space.  All the stories focus on ways that God proved himself mighty throughout the Bible and each story features a Mighty Thought (kind of like the theme), Power words (or key verse), and and activity to drive everything home.

I think this children's Bible is an ideal pick for little boys for a whole host of reasons! My boys have loved the comic book style. I think it keeps them actively involved, following all the different pictures around the page.  All the comic book style action words (such as a blast cloud with the word "Zoomfa" inside) really take the stories into "boy language" and speak straight to their little sound-effect sensibilities!  And there is just the cutest little sheep super hero who introduces all the stories- so that appeals to both mom and boys!

I will say that it is pretty surface, as Children's Bibles tend to be, but if you are just looking for a good overview of Bible Stories that present them in such a way that your kids are sure to listen, then you will most definitely enjoy Rumble!  Zap!  Pow!
