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.
Brave Queen Esther (I Can Read! / Adventure Bible) Paperback – by David Miles (Illustrator)
In this title children learn the story of Esther, a daughter of God. The story is explained in an easy to understand way for the age recommendation of 4-8 years old. The turn of the events in the story move along quickly. We are introduced to Esther, learn the king is looking for a wife, see that trouble brews for the Jews, and that a dangerous choice must be made.
The illustrations depict the story very well! My six year old daughter found the story easy to read and comprehend. The book is 32 pages long and can be read in 5-10 minutes depending on the reading level of a child. This book can be used to discuss having courage to be brave and to do what’s right even though it can be scary.
At the end of the book there’s a page that a page that features People in Bible Time with a short bit of information about Esther, there’s a Bible verse and an area called Words to Treasure which talks about the story just read and reminds us of how we should pray to God for courage. My daughter and I recommend this book! It’s a great way for a child to learn about trusting God in all situations and doing the hard thing even though it can put you at risk.
Noah’s Voyage (I Can Read! / Adventure Bible) Paperback – by David Miles (Illustrator)
Noah’s Voyage is an excellent character story. We see Noah as he obeys in building the ark. We see the gathering of all living creatures that would also journey along. We see how Noah and his family patiently wait as God kept them safe during the flood. It’s quite the journey that ends with the promise that God will never flood the earth again. The biggest take away is that we should always trust God and be obedient to the things he calls us to just like Noah.
My children enjoy the story of the Flood. They said that it seems so unbelievable but they know that with God anything is possible. My daughter was able to read this book on her own not needing any help with the vocabulary words. I think the length of the story is a good fit for the recommended age of 4-8 years old. The illustrations aren’t over the top or super comical.
At the end of the book there’s a page that a page that features People in Bible Time with a short bit of information about Noah, there’s a Bible verse and an area called Words to Treasure which talks about the story. There is further information on the detailed instructions God gave Noah to build the ark! I’m sure children that favor stats will hold the information near especially if they enjoy participating in Bible trivia. As with the other titles in this series, we’d recommend this one too!
