The first page is usually one or two words, the second page builds off of it to include those 1-2 words and add another line with a few more words. The third page follows suit and the fourth page finishes the story. The last page in the book is a vocabulary list of the words in the book.
One of my favorite things about this series is that I caught my 4-yr old daughter reading these to her 2-yr old brother. They are incredibly easy for beginning readers.
However, I didn’t like the oversimplifying of the stories. For instance, my least favorite storybook is “David and the Giant”. I thought it would be about David trusting God with Goliath but instead it simply illustrated this:
hit the lion
and the bear
and the giant.”
That was the extent of it, with pictures of David and his sling throwing rocks at a lion, a bear, and a giant. Because it’s so watered down and simplified, we have to skip this storybook so as to deny my kids permission (from what they are reading) to go hitting everyone and everything. Yes, I know, my parenting trumps whatever is read; however, I think it’s a terrible premise to a product for the betterment of early readers & reading comprehension.
Just because they are easy readers based loosely on the Bible doesn’t mean they are a quality product that I would want to endorse wholeheartedly.
If you are looking for a very easy reader, this is a good product. If you also want something that trains them with God’s Word, this is not a good product. I tend to want the latter because we have the BOB books and others which increase confidence in my kids’ ability to read short stories so I’m not impressed with this series in the least.
Disclaimer: I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
In all of the books, there's a sentence that grows with each page. For instance on the first page there's one word, on the second page a few more, and so forth. The last three pages of the books features vocabulary words with like illustrations to memorize, a truth to learn (pertaining to the sentence), a verse to say (Bible memory verse), a prayer to pray , and a look back in the book activity or two.
The illustrations by Hannah Wood are simple and quite appealing. The colors chosen are warm and friendly. Each illustration throughout the books starts with a base and continues to build upon that till the ending of each sentence. This feature allows children to spot the differences right away.
The set of ten books comes in a small light weight cardboard box featuring a Velcro tab. The fact that these 5.5"x7" readers can all be stored together minimizes loss.These take up very minimal space in the home and can easily be brought along when traveling.
The Story booklets that feature stories from the Old and New Testament are: The Sun and Moon, Two Mice and the Ark, Moses and the Bush, David and the Giant, The City Wall, The Star and the Kings, Jesus on the Water, The Good Shepherd, The Sad Son, & The Angel and the Cave. The first book beginning with creation and the last the resurrection of Christ.
My little boy has been enjoying these books. He said they are fun and he really likes going back through and seeing new things each time. I love there's a activity we can do at the end of each book together. It makes our time using these special and memorable! He's a very new reader but is catching on quite quickly with memorization. I am very happy with this set because not only will my son be practicing his reading skills but also learning about God in the process!
I highly recommend and feel it's best suited for children age 3-5 years old!
