Miracles of Jesus (kids book review)
Miracles of Jesus is a level two I Can Read! based on the NIV Adventure Bible, the number one Bible for kids. Through engaging illustrations and age-appropriate vocabulary, young readers will follow Jesus on his travels as he heals the sick and spreads the Good News of his Father’s love. Written for the newly independent reader, this series is appropriate for children almost ready for their first chapter books.
We are a Christian family. As such, I have been blessed to receive to review several Adventure Bible I Can Read! books to share with my young children. The latest is Miracles of Jesus with pictures by David Miles.
Miracles of Jesus centers on Jesus's journeys teaching and specifically is centered on his healing the woman who touched his cloak, healing Jairus' sick daughter that everyone thought had died, and the multiplication of the loaves and fishes to feed the crown of 5000.
I liked how they didn't take away from the Biblical stories but rather the illustrator made the pictures in a way that children could connect to the story and understand the awesomeness behind the miracles.
Miracles of Jesus is recommended for ages 4-8 and is a level 2 reader. My 8 year old read it with no problems, only asking how to pronounce the name of Jarius. My 5 year old liked the pictures and the story.
I think this is a great book for teaching children the Biblical stories of Jesus' miracles without using an actual Bible.
The publisher, Zondervan, provided me a free copy of this book through Booklook Bloggers program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
