Cannibal cows, swamp dragons, demonic pigs … kids might be shocked to learn these things are actually in the Bible. And in Weird and Gross Bible Stuff, they can explore these and other peculiar and shocking facts and stories. Each chapter is organized by a theme—like “Amazing and Weird” or “Bizarre Healings”—and is packed full of snippets and information that appeals to kids who love odd facts and “gross” things while also providing biblically accurate facts that help readers better understand and appreciate the Bible. And also helps them become smarter as they apply that knowledge to their own overall reading of God’s Word.
Weird and Gross Bible Stuff:
- contains biblically sound information in language kids can relate to
- works as an age-appropriate introduction to biblical facts for any child 8 to 12
- contains large text and an open page design, along with lots of detailed illustrations, making it perfect for reluctant readers
- is part of the 2:52 series of books, which focuses on becoming more like Jesus as described in Luke 2:52
