The book is so fun for younger primary age kids. You start reading the book following Zacchaeus' side of the story, then in the middle you flip the book upside down and read it from Jesus' side of the famous story. My son loves the part when we get to flip it over. The text follows a fun poem type rhyme that's makes for an easy read. Check out whole series.
My kids just LOVE this flipbook idea. The flipbook concept is not something I have seen before. You read the book from Zacchaeus' perspective, and when you get to the end of his story (the middle of the book), there is a page that says "Wait! You thought you were finished, didn't you? It's time to take another look! Close then flip this storybook!" And when you do, the story starts again but this time its called Jesus and Zacchaeus, and is written from Jesus' perspective. Its a very clever idea. And out of the three books in this series - this one Zacchaeus and Jesus is our favourite. Dandi has such a beautiful way of writing and getting children to connect with the story. Very well written; beautiful pictures; the book itself is excellent quality; we highly recommend this book!
