    We have beginning readers in our family so we are always on the hunt for new easy to read books to encourage their newly acquired skills. The I Can Read! line from Zonderkidz has many great selections in the different reading levels. Right now we are on level 2 which is designed for developing readers that need a little bit of help.

    Heroes of the Bible Treasury is a compilation of six I Can Read! books from the level 2 group. The six stories include: The story of Noah and the ark. Joseph and his dreams. Moses leading his people to the promised land. The story of the prophet Elijah. The bravery of Queen Esther in the face of evil. And finally the miraculous conversion and ministry of Paul.

    We have been using the Adventure Bible for Early Readers for our Bible time. Heroes of the Bible Treasury uses the same art work so it is very familiar to our kids. I think that helps them commit to memory the content of the story. Another thing that I like about this book is that it gives my kids a beginning feel of chapter books. It makes me smile to see how excited they are to use a bookmark. I'm thrilled with the sense of accomplishment the kids get as they make their way through this book. They feel like they are reading a big kid book, but it is still at their reading level so they are also encouraged in their reading journey.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    This book actually exceeds my expectations. When I first ordered, I was not expecting a hardback book (which lasts longer than paperback), which is what I got.

    It has the stories of Joseph the Dreamer, Noah's Voyage, Elijah God's Mighty Prophet, Moses Leads the People, Brave Queen Esther, and Paul Meets Jesus. These stories are extremely encouraging to (1) trust God and (2) do the RIGHT thing.

    Something in this day & age our children need to know and be instilled with early.

    The pictures are bright and vivid and the stories stay pretty close to the bible, of course told in a manner that is understandable by children.

    And the best part is that it is part of the 'I Can Read' spectrum of books, which allows me to gauge which of my kids can read it alone and who needs help.

    {FYI: I got this book for FREE from BookLookBloggers in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}

    The Heroes of the Bible Treasury, is a marvelous children's book published by Zonderkidz. A hardcover book, it contains six level two Adventure Bible I Can Read stories. Level two stories involve reading with help. They have longer sentences and language play for developing readers.

    This book contains the following stories: Noah's Voyage, Moses Leads the People, Elijah God's Mighty Prophet, Joseph the Dreamer, Brave Queen Esther, and Paul Meets Jesus. Each story is written in simple vocabulary, easy for young readers. Each includes several pages to read, then a section entitled People in Bible Times and a section with various titles that gives fun facts related to the story. All are beautifully illustrated by David Miles with gorgeous age-appropriate pictures.

    I enjoyed this book. It will appeal to any young child wanting to read the Bible for himself. The pictures are incredibly done and detailed enough to provide a little extra information not included in the words of the story.

    I would recommend this book to anyone attempting to encourage young children to form a habit of reading the Bible for themselves.

    These two books are a compilation of six of Adventure Bibles and Zonderkidz previously published I can Read Bible stories bound in one collection for easy use. My beginning reader enjoyed reading these stories and seeing the pictures. I recommend this for homeschools, church libraries, Christian day cares, church libraries and Christian schools as well as grandparents and parents who want to help their children master reading skills while learning Bible stories. Excellent collections.

    "Heroes of the Bible" contains 6 books in 1. Each of these books is available as stand alone books as well. The books included in this treasury are:

    Noah's Voyage

    Joseph the Dreamer

    Moses Leads the People

    Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet

    Brave Queen Esther

    Paul Meets Jesus

    Noah's Voyage:

    This book tells the story of Noah. I was glad that it told how God brought the animals to the ark since that is what it says in the Bible. One thing I wondered about, though, was that it said that after the animals and Noah and his family were on the ark "God closed the window tight". In the Bible, it mentions that God closed the door. The illustrations were beautiful and reminded me of colored pencil pictures. Many of the pages are completely covered with color making the book visually appealing. There was one picture I didn't like as it shows that suddenly the whole side of the ark is covered in windows and the animals have their heads sticking out. This is more the modern rendition of the ark and I didn't like seeing it in the book that followed the Bible otherwise. At the end of the book is a "People in Bible Times" section that tells a little bit more about Noah and a "Did You Know?" section that tells about the size of the ark.

    Joseph the Dreamer:

    This book follows the Biblical account of Joseph. It tells how he got the coat of many colors, told his brothers about his dream, was sold into slavery in Egypt, and eventually was instrumental in saving a lot of people's lives with the saving of the grain from the plentiful years. It gives a very abreviated version of Joseph's time in slavery. In fact, it skips right over it. It says Joseph was sold to a rich man and the rich man put him in jail, almost as if he went straight into prison. It also says that Joseph was the youngest, when Benjamin was the youngest brother. The end of the book has a "People in Bible Times" about Joseph and Jacob and "Life in Bible Times" about the coat of many colors.

    Moses Leads the People:

    This book tells the story of Moses from the burning bush to the Egyptians drowning in the Red Sea. It does not spend much time on the plagues, just listing them in order. It does tell more about the 10th plague and how the Israelites obeyed God and were not affected by it. The book shows God's protection of his chosen people in the wilderness. It did not make it very clear that Moses was also an Israelites. It just says he knew them as he had lived in Egypt. The "People in Bible Times" at the back of the book does say he was a Hebrew, but the story itself is confusing on that score. It also says that Moses packed up his family and brother and went to Egypt. The Bible did say that Aaron was coming to meet Moses, but before that, I'm pretty sure he was still living in Egypt like the rest of the Israelites. The book also has a "Words to Treasure" section in the back.

    Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet:

    This book tells the story of Elijah from when he told Ahab that it wouldn't rain through the showdown between the prophets of Baal and Elijah on Mount Carmel. The book does not make it clear that God sent Elijah to the widow woman with the oil and flour. It makes it seem like he was just out for a walk one day and came across her. I liked the detail it gave to the encounter on Mount Carmel and God's showing that He was the true God. The back of the book has a "People in Bible Times" about Elijah and a "Life in Bible Times" about what a prophet was.

    Brave Queen Esther:

    This book tells the story of Esther. It followed the Biblical story but left out some of the aspects of the story such as why King Xerxes was looking for a new queen. It also makes it seem that Esther was the only girl brought to the palace. It also did not say why Esther was in danger if she went to the King. When we read the story, I talked about these portions of the story that the book did not cover. The illustrations were beautiful and reminded me of colored pencil pictures. At the end of the book is a "People of the Bible" section that tells a little bit more about Esther and Mordecai and a "Did You Know?" section that tells about the festival of Purim.

    Paul Meets Jesus:

    In this book, it starts with Saul and his hatred of Christians and throwing them in prison. Then Saul encounters Jesus on the road to Damascus, is converted and changes his name to Paul. The book also tells a little about Paul's life after his conversion. The pictures are nice, although a little more muted than some of the other books in this series. The back of the book has "People in Bible Times" about Saul/Paul and "Did You Know" about Paul praying.

    I like having books that I can let my children read and know that it is teaching truth. It is a Level 2 reader which stands for "Reading with Help-high interest stories for developing readers". Many of the pages are completely covered with color making the book visually appealing. Even though I had previously reviewed "Noah's Voyage" and "Brave Queen Esther", it is nice to have the books all together in one volume. My son loves to read these stories. The addition of a table of contents would make this book even better so you could find the individual stories better.

    I received a free copy of this book to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.
