Reading Age: 4-8
Children love to be read to, and they'll listen again and again to
their favorite book. Here's the second in the award-winning Read-Aloud
Bible Stories series, a special book written and illustrated just for
them, well-grounded in the authority of Scripture.Read-Aloud Bible Stories,
Volume 2, is written in the vocabulary of your youngest listeners.
Colorful illustrations and much-loved Bible stories will draw each
child to hear again the stories of Scripture read to him in words he
can understand. Perfect for early readers, too!
This series is by far the best of the best. The stories and illustrations are fabulous!
Children often find the illustrations in other Bible story books scary
or weird. While the illustrations are true to the times in terms of
dress, they are exaggerated in size, yet simple. For example, Zaccheus,
"who was to little to reach high things..." is shown as a small man in
HUGE chair. (p. 6-7)
The text is delightful! For example in "The
Boys and Girls and Jesus," the children come to see Jesus as part of
families, i.e. "Every day lots of daddies and mommies came to hear
Jesus talk. Grandpas and grandmas and friends came, too. Some days -
there were too many people to get inside a house. Then, the daddies and
the mommies and the grandpas and the grandmas and the friends stood
right out in the sunshine..." (p.71-74)
Great for older children to read to younger children. The best part is adults will enjoy this book too! (Kay)
