Fun with the Holy Family: a review

Fun with the Holy Family
(2012) Pauline Kids  

   A 64 page activity/coloring book which tell the story of the Holy Family beginning with introducing Mary's parents through the family's life in Nazareth following their Passover trip to Jerusalem when Jesus becomes lost.  There is also a section about special names and places associated with the Holy Family in the back.  I'm not sure what age the book is aimed at but I would guess 4-7 years old; my four year old can definitely have fun coloring the pages and following along with the story but many of the activity sheets were beyond her (one asked you to follow a path using only even numbers) but given the pages for coloring alternated with the activity sheets this was not a problem ~ if she did not understand the activity sheet she simply turned the page to the next coloring picture.
   I liked that at the bottom of many of the coloring/story pages there were present day applications or simply prayers suggestions.  Overall I found it to be a lovely coloring book and fun way to introduce some of the early events in the marriage of Mary and Joseph and the life of Jesus.
