My thoughts : I received a copy of the first book in the series Escape from Jerusalem. I am impressed! I wish I would have had this when my kids were younger. It would have been perfect to take to church and have them look at this to keep them quiet! 😉
The books are made up like a comic book describing events from The Book of Mormon. The script is simplified making the story easier for children to understand. I could even see myself using this along with family scripture study. As you read from the scriptures, it would be easy to have this and point out to small children the pictures. Visualization is always a great teacher.
Yes, I love this concept and the way these books are presented.
