The Golden Plates: Premium Edition ~ A great way to share the Book of Mormon with children. Enter the tour giveaway today~

The Golden Plates by Michael Allred
Rating: 5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Scripture Comic Book

Book Description:  The Golden Plates is an illustrated adaptation of the fifth best selling book of all time, The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, which has sold over 120 million copies. This graphic novel/comic book adaptation was first created in 2005 by award winning artist Michael Allred. The Premium Edition has replaced the full text originally included in the first edition with simplified and edited text, making the story easier for younger readers to follow and also showcasing more of the stunning artwork. It has also been converted to digital form for enjoyment on phones, tablets, and desktop devices through Amazon, iTunes, and Kobo. New printed editions have also been released through Amazon.
The first 6 issues cover the first 145 pages (27%) of the Book of Mormon, from 1st Nephi through the Words of Mormon. This adaptation is a fun and enthralling to way to help older children and teens understand and enjoy the Book of Mormon in a format more advanced than simplified children's stories or scripture readers meant for young children.

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.
