Christian parents especially appreciate books for their young readers that help them understand more about God. Reading the Bible can be a very overwhelming challenge for young readers. Therefore, Bible stories written in a learn-to-read format are a welcomed product.
This is the idea behind the proposal Bible Stories for I Can Read! Level1. When interesting stories from the Bible are written with on-level vocabulary, the child gains knowledge of Scripture and biblical truths while developing his or her reading skills. The result is a meaningful and positive reading experience for the child. Possible titles include: Old Testament: Twelve Special Stones, The Life of Samuel, Elijah and Ahab at Mt. Carmel (1 Kings 18), The Healing of Naaman (2 Kings 5), New Testament: The Two Sons, Jesus Feeds 5000 (Matthew 14, Mark 6, John 6), Lazarus Rises from the Dead (John 11), Jesus Walks on Water (Matthew 14), Saul’s Conversion (Acts 9)
