The Read and Share Look, I’m Reading! Bible Storybook gets children interacting in more than one way. Interactions children will practice and master are listening, recognizing images,and responding a correct word. The approach of naming a specific picture with its corresponding word has always proved to work well with my children in helping them stay focused. It makes story time fun and interesting for kids in knowing that they are participating in reading too.
In this book, there are more than 90 Bible stories based on the International Children’s Bible translation. Well-known stories such as Noah and the Ark, Adam and Eve in Eden, David and Goliath, Moses and the Ten Commandments, Jesus, and more from both the old and new testament. The stories are in a very simple format that isn’t likely to overwhelm new readers. The book recommendation is for children ages 4-8 and grade levels preschool-third grade.
Each story features a title, scripture reference(s), three images & corresponding word, and the story text. There are always three images. The images are sprinkled through the story so children can read either on their own or along with you. This is known as the rebus format. I’ve been having my five-year-old son read this book every morning before school out load and he’s doing great. The stories aren’t overwhelming and he always wears a proud sense of accomplishment when he’s finished reading. It’s had such a positive effect on him!
For parents and caregivers, there’s a tips for using this book page that instructs how this book may be used. It’s not necessary but it proves helpful to those that may need the guidance. Overall this a nice, not overwhelming version of the Word of God that can help children build confidence in their reading while growing their Faith in God. I certainly do recommend it.
