Children love the feeling of accomplishment they get from doing things by themselves: getting dressed, tying their shoes … and especially reading! That's why boys and girls get so excited about The Early Reader's Bible: the Bible that beginning readers can read all on their own. The Early Reader's Bible Features: - 64 easy-to-read Bible stories, based on standard public school word lists - Colorful illustrations, stimulating questions, and real-life applications to increase children's understanding of God's Word - List of 250 basic words used in public school early reader books - List of over 200 new words including Bible vocabulary with fewer than five new words introduced in each story. Help your child learn to associate the words "I can" with reading and loving Scripture -- and with the child-friendly, best-selling Early Readers Bible.
WickEvansville, IndianaAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Much is Good, But I Do Have Two CriticismsJanuary 20, 2018WickEvansville, IndianaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Early Reader's Bible was a Bible we bought for our oldest daughter for her 6th birthday. Zondervan advertises the Bible for those who are 4-8 or in preschool up to third grade; however, I wouldn't recommend the Bible for seven or eight-year-olds who have strong reading skills.
Here are some of the many great features of the Bible:
- The 525 page Bible isn't big (6 x 7 inches or 16 x 18 centimeters) so little ones won't have trouble carrying it.
- The pictures are colorful and are found throughout the book.
- The pictures of the crucifixion and people complaining or crying are age-appropriate.
- The title of the 64 stories are big and bold and are based on standard American public school word lists.
- A list of the stories, 250 basic words, and 230 new words are found in the back of the book.
- No more than five new words are used in any story, and usually, a smaller number is used. Words as simple as bread and paper and less common names such as Jairus and Onesimus are found on the new word list.
- Each story ends with a "something to ask" section and a "something to do" section. Questions include:
1. How did God make the bad water become good water?
2. Whom did the shepherds see?
3. How can you show Jesus that you love Him?
4. What can you do for a friend when he hurts?
What do I not like?
- Only Scripture references and not actual Bible verses are provided under the titles.
- There isn't a whole lot of diversity amongst the people. Unfortunately, I've seen this problem in a few children's Bibles.
Despite the criticisms, I still think this Bible can help children know Jesus. I recommend having your child add some color (don't forget the freckles) to a few of the people and adding a NIrV Bible verse each time a story is read.
Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
4rrrrsNorth DakotaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely LOVE this Bible!!!August 3, 20154rrrrsNorth DakotaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I ordered this for my 7 year old daughter who wanted to know why she couldn't have her own Bible to read like her big sisters. This book is Perfect!!!! There are just enough challenging words or names in it to keep her learning, but most are very basic and phonetic words she can sound out. I am also a teacher, so that alone scored big points with me. It is very true to the bible, not changing the story to make it easy to understand. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for any beginning reader who has basic phonics skills, just finishing kindergarten or starting first grade. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!
GodsAmigaMisawa, JapanAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for Beginning Readers!February 20, 2014GodsAmigaMisawa, JapanAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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!
