The much-loved and treasured Bible Friends characters are made new again in this exciting, interactive and engaging book. With lots of different activities, The Big Bible Activity Book offers little hands a way in to the biggest story of all time!
With a special ‘lay-flat’ binding to allow for easy use, pages of stickers to add to story scenes, colouring, drawing and ideas for prayer and response, children are invited to explore a vast range of Bible stories for themselves.
