Adventure Bible Early Readers Stories by Zonderkidz

adbiblereaders

My children ask a lot of questions and are eager to learn more about God and the Bible. Since the Bible can be difficult for them to understand on their own and there are times when I can’t sit down with them, I intentionally like to keep storybooks and readers around. I can’t stress enough the importance of having material for children around that they can study, ask questions about, take to heart, and form opinions about. I prefer materials that stick pretty close to the actual event of things that took place and have the Adventure Bible series to meet that standard.

I’ve been on the look out for things that my children can do whether at home or on the go that can nurture and grow their Faith in God. Specifically, around this time I start collection a little of this and that to bring along during our family vacation for the year. Things I tend to gather include coloring books, card games, stickers, a minimal number of art supplies,  and a few music albums I believe they’ll enjoy listening to when riding in the car for several hours.

Around the World with Kate and Mack {Book Review}

9780938978497-2

Around the World with Kate and Mack is an exciting book that my whole family has been enjoying over the last few months! Wycliffe Bible Translators released this title in the hopes to introduce Bible translation and its importance to children of all ages. I believe they’ve hit the mark in an exciting way!

This book takes readers all around the world following Kate and her bird Mack. The two teach us about different cultures, languages, countries, and facts that are fun and unique. I’ve been reading this book to my 4 and 6 year old. They told me the like the colorful illustrations and learning about different places in the world. I think the illustrations are excellent.

A Father’s Love {Book Review}

ADVEFATHLOVEBK

A Father’s Love is a level two I Can Read! retelling of the familiar Bible story of a father’s love for his child. This specific title is part of the I Can Read! series based on the bestselling NIV Adventure Bible. Young readers learn about how God’s love for us is never-ending through this tale that highlights the importance of family relationships and forgiveness.

My daughter was really interested in this story. She said sometimes she would rather go off and have fun instead of doing chores. Well, that’s kinda exactly what the son in this story did. He decided he wanted to go spend his inheritance and have what he thought was a lot of fun in his life. We see the consequences of his careless decisions when hard times hit and those he thought were his friends wouldn’t help him. He sees how bad his choices were in spending all he had and he returns home. My daughter thought the Dad would be upset and mad but instead saw that true love forgives just like Christ forgives us and is always there with open arms.

My six year old had no stumbling over words nor needed any help with pronunciation in reading. I like that she’s learning fundamental truths of her faith. At the end of the book there’s a page that a page that features People in Bible times. There’s a Bible verse about being lost than found along with another Bible verse area called Words to Treasure which can be used for a memory verse if so desired.

I would recommend this book! It’s a great way for a child to learn about the Bible that’s on their level. The illustrations are appealing and add well to the story and the bit at the end is a great reminder of what was just read. Good when read alone or with the whole family! Though I would recommend reading together so if your child has any questions, you are there to answer them.

Interested in Purchasing? A Father’s Love (I Can Read! / Adventure Bible) can be purchased on Amazon.com for $3.99 as of this posting.

Miracles of Jesus {Book Review}

null_jpg_9836

The Miracles of Jesus is a book that is part of the I Can Read series based on the NIV Adventure Bible. In, this collection we see not just one miracle that Jesus did but three which included The feeding of the 5,000, Jairus’ daughter, the healing of the sick woman. My 6 year old daughter is eagerly growing in her Faith and this book shows her how Jesus spread the love of God through miracles and teachings to the people. After reading this book aloud she told me that this love of God is still ever present to this day and that anyone that has faith and believes would receive it!

This is a I Can Read! level 2 reader which means children may need help with reading it. This level tends to present high interest stories for developing readers. My daughter was able to read nearly all of the stories by herself, only needing help with words like Galilee and the name of Jairus. She didn’t know the story about Jairus’ daughter but was excited to tell me she knew about Jesus feeding the people and of the woman that was sick. She also pointed out that the illustrations showed other miracles done which were of Jesus healing the blind man and helping a man that couldn’t get up walk again.

In this reader there are 32 pages. Every page features well done illustrations that aren’t goofy or over the top. The stories are broken up into just two as when Jesus is speaking with Jairus that is when the miracle of healing the sick woman happens. The book isn’t wordy and the sentences shorts. At the end of the book there’s a page that a page that features Did You know? with a short bit of information about the miracles Jesus preformed, there’s a Bible verse and an area called Words to Treasure which can be used for a memory verse if so desired.

I would recommend this book! It’s a great way for a child to learn about the Bible that’s on their level. The illustrations are appealing and add well to the story and the bit at the end is a great reminder of what was just read. Good when read alone or with the whole family! I happy my daughter was so taken with it and she thinks all kids her age should read it.

Interested in Purchasing? Miracles of Jesus (I Can Read! / Adventure Bible)can be purchased in paperback format on Amazon.com for $3.99 as of this posting.

Graham Blanchard & Callie Grant Books: Little Seed: A Life, Close As A Breath, and Jesus Saves Me {Book Review}

gblogoI was recently given the opportunity to share my thoughts upon and spread the news on three Christ centered books written specifically for children by Graham Blanchard & Callie Grant. Each of the three titles that were sent along my son and daughter enjoyed quite a bit. Each of the books each have a specific purpose and come from certain lines that in different ways nurtures and has potential to grow the spiritual development of a child. There’s nothing more important than for a child to come to know certain aspects of their Saviour whether it be just scratching the surface or going much deeper. I guarantee these titles will invoke many Christ-filled conversations.
