Noah’s Voyage tells the story of a brave and faithful hero of the Old Testament. Written in the I Can Read level two standards, with age-appropriate vocabulary and concepts, young readers read about Noah, a simple man with great faith and trust in God. When God asks Noah to follow his directions, build an ark, and put two of every animal on it, Noah and his family do what they are asked, knowing God would not steer them wrong.
This I Can Read! series of Bible stories makes use of the unique features found in the NIV Adventure Bible such as “People in Bible Times” and “Did You Know ”.
I love receiving these Adventure Bible I Can Read books in the mail for my kids to read. Noah's Voyage is the latest that my kids have read. This is a level 2 Zonderkidz reader, which is meant for ages 4-8 and is a reading with help book. My 8 year old was able to read it to her brothers, ages 6 and 3 with no issues and my 6 year old was able to read most of the words, but needed help with some of the names. All 3 of my kids loved the story and the illustrations. My 3 year loves pointing at all the animals.
As a parent, I was impressed with some of the Biblical accuracy that this version of the Noah story told. This story includes Noah's age, the names of his sons, and how long the Earth was flooded. I have found that many times Biblical stories are glossed over for children. I love how the Adventure Bible: I Can Read books add context, while keeping it kid-friendly.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an authentic re-telling of Biblical stories for kids.
