Do you want to travel somewhere new this summer but find yourself stuck at home? In my family, we love to travel, love to explore, and love to read!
Try traveling or sending your young explorer to amazing places from the Bible this summer through the adventure of reading some great books!
The Let’s Go Explore books will guide you through famous places of the Bible in amazing photos, with interesting differences in culture to learn and a list of sights to see. Your young travelers will end up excitedly sharing fun facts with you all summer long – including new vocabulary, fun facts and biblical references!
Let’s Go Explore Jerusalem, the holy city, includes so much fascinating information on each page (as all the Let’s Go Explore books do). One of my favorite facts that I found is that 1/3 of all people that move to Jerusalem are from America! Also, 1/3 of the population is under the age of 15 and 1/3 of the people are Muslim. Did you know that?
I’ve always been interested in architecture and would love to travel to Jerusalem with my kids someday. History and architecture are in abundance in Let’s Go Explore. The walls that surround old Jerusalem are over 500 years old and they actually found the Pools of Bethesda. How exciting is that? Remember, this is where a lame man was healed by Jesus. Jesus said “get up and walk” and the man walked. Amazing!
Let’s Go Explore Galilee and Let’s Go Explore Israel have beautiful maps. The Sea of Galilee is mentioned in the Bible in Matthew, Mark, and John. There are so many stories from the New Testament that took place in the area known as Galilee, including the cities of Bethsaida, Tabgha, Chorazin, and Capernaum where much of Jesus’ ministry took place. And for your junior foodies, Let’s Go Explore Israel includes some really great photos of meals and food from the area. You’ll also love the photos of the beautiful, local sea life.
These books are perfectly laid out for children to read. (My 6-year-old son loves them!) If you’ve got a roadtrip planned, pack these books for the ride and enjoy your kids Bible travel, too!
