This book is set up very much like the beloved children’s book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, but uses characters from The Book of Mormon instead of animals. Each thing the people see has a different color.
I read the book to my three boys. My 13-year-old liked the book and how it followed a similar format as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? My 7-year-old felt the book would be perfect for his 2-year-old sister, and my five-year-old son said the book was awesome.
What I like about the book is the colorful pages, and the introduction to small children of key people in The Book of Mormon, as well as a little snippet of their story, the most important person being Jesus Himself. It can lead into a deeper discussion for families. The book is also sturdy, and a good size.
I also like how the author has a website where she offers activity page supplements for the book. There is a color game and two printable packets. Check them out at lehilehiwhatdoyousee.com.
Unlike my 13-year-old, I unfortunately did not like how the author used another person’s brilliant book idea and made it her own. The flow wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be either, though it was creative how she came up with the colored items to go with each person.
I also felt that the artwork should have shown a difference in color between the Nephites and Lamanites.
Other than those things, it is a cute and simple book, and great for little kids who wish to learn about The Book of Mormon heroes.
Any parent who’s had to sit through a meeting with a small child knows that sometimes a good board book can save you! This is one of those that I would have loved to have had in the diaper bag when our kids were small.
It’s a super cute board book. I love that it talks about not only scripture characters, but colors. It’s one of those books that all parents want to grab. This one would be a great night time story as well. The rhyming words just work!
The pictures in this one are fun! I loved the way the illustrator depicted the characters from the scriptures. This book will make the scriptures come alive for small children everywhere!
