I am homeschooling my 5 year old this year for kindergarten and have been trying to find good books to use for practicing reading. This Bible is perfect! My daughter can read each story aloud with little to no help from me and in just the week since she has started reading to me from it (one story each night) her fluency has improved by leaps and bounds! We are also using other story books but this is by far her favorite. She loves reading Bible stories and when we get to the questions I read them to her and she enjoys answering them. The questions help me see where her reading comprehension is at as well as makes her learn from the story. :-) It isn't so long that it gets frustrating but there is enough on each page that it isn't too easy either. The illustrations are bright and colorful. This is all-around a wonderful Bible! :-) Even on days when my daughter doesn't want to read a story to me she will still ask to read the Bible!
This Bible storybook has great illustrations and easy to read stories. Definitely encourages beginning readers to keep learning. Reading God's Word is the most important reason to learn to read, so this book gives a great sense of accomplishment.
Wow! We LOVE this Bible!! My daughter is in grade 2 and has been learning reading through phonics. She liked the pictures right away (we have the 1991 version, with different illustrations than the newer publication). She should be able to read just about every word in this Bible with little help, yet also still be challenged with a few new words in each story. At the end of each story is a great little section that includes questions and follow-up activities. In the back is a Story List, which includes Scripture references and the moral & spiritual values learned in each story. There is also a public schools Basic Words List. With each Bible story reading you will find not more than five new words not found on this basic list. The New Words List is also at the back of this Bible. This will make an excellent Bible for her own personal devotions, as well as being a great addition to our homeschool reading materials!
