This book is written simply enough for a beginning reader to be able to read it for himself. The story line stays true to the Bible and includes excellent background so the young reader will understand not only the events that took place but also the concepts of trusting God and worshiping him alone. At the end of the book the concept of prophet is given special attention so the child will better understand who Elijah was.
What do I like best about this book? The accuracy of the story and the excellent balance in explaining concepts while maintaining the enthusiasm in the story is impressive.
What do I dislike about this book? Nothing. My only question is why the altar appears to be squared off. My understanding has been that the stones were not to have been cut when making an altar to God in Bible times. But this is a pretty remote issue in a children’s book – nothing to get uptight over.
Adventure Bible: Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet is 32-pages and features pictures by David Miles, and it's a part of the I Can Read! series (level 2).
As the story goes, King Ahab thought the only true god was Baal and many of his people thought so as well. After Elijah found about about this, he made the announcement, "There will be no more rain in Israel until I say so. God is not happy with you."
The streams quickly dried up and most of the food was gone. Later, Elijah runs across a woman and her young child, whom only had a little flour and oil. He told them to go make a loaf of bread and they did as he asked. A miracle occurs, and the woman and child would never run out of flour and oil again.
Despite there being very little water across the land, King Ahab and his people still believed that Baal is the true God. With the Lord's help, Elijah will show them that "The Lord is their God!"
This is my first time reading an Adventure Bible picture book, and for the most part, I've been impressed with this one. The story has been written to appeal to children and give them a good understanding of who Elijah was without having to preach to them. The illustrations are very detailed and enhances the story quite a bit. Overall, Adventure Bible: Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet is a cute picture and a great way to introduce the Bible to younge readers.
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my unbiased review. All opinions are my own.
My son, who is grade 1, greatly enjoyed reading through this story about Elijah. The pictures are colourful and filled with action, and do an excellent job at bringing the text to life. The story itself is written at level 2 of the "I Can Read" level, which has longer sentences than the prior level, and for the most part my son was able to read the text without assistance. The story flows well, and made for a number of discussion points with my son, who had many questions about how the woman's oil and flour never ran out or why Elijah had the people pour water on his alter to make it extra difficult to burn. I personally have always loved Elijah and especially this story, and I am so glad to have an engaging book like this one to spark my children's interest in the story in a deeper way than simply reading it from our family Bible.
I, and my children, give this book a solid rating and award it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
