Joseph and the Colorful Coat: The Brick Bible for Kids - Book Review

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

The famous story of Joseph and his coat of many colors makes its LEGO debut as part of The Brick Bible for Kids series! Joseph was the undeniable favorite of Jacob’s twelve sons, much to the jealousy of his brothers. One day, Joseph’s brothers took from him a colorful coat that had been given to him by their father, threw him in a well, and sold him into slavery. The eleven brothers then told their father that his favorite son had been killed, presenting him with the blood smeared coat as evidence. Despite this betrayal, Joseph becomes a very powerful man in the community. Years later, when Joseph’s brothers come to Egypt to ask for food, will he forgive them for their past wrongdoings or hold their sins against them?

Brendan Powell Smith is the author of five other books in The Brick Bible for Kids series as well as several adult books. He has produced over five thousand illustrations retelling over four hundred stories from the Bible. You can visit his website at Smith lives in Mountain View, California.
My Review:
A hardcover book with 32 pages, Joseph and the Colorful Coat: The Brick Bible for Kids explains the acclaimed Bible story of Joseph in a way that kids can understand, and will be drawn to.  All illustrations are done with Lego figures and pieces.  The story is quite thorough and I believe it will help children relate to the actual Bible account.
