The Read and Share Look, I'm Reading! Bible Storybook gets children interacting in more than one way. Interactions children will practice and master are listening, recognizing images,and responding a correct word. The approach of naming a specific picture with its corresponding word has always proved to work well with my children in helping them stay focused. It makes story time fun and interesting for kids in knowing that they are participating in reading too. In this book, there are more than 90 Bible stories based on the International Children's Bible translation. Well-known stories such as Noah and the Ark, Adam and Eve in Eden, David and Goliath, Moses and the Ten Commandments, Jesus, and more from both the old and new testament. The stories are in a very simple format that isn't likely to overwhelm new readers. The book recommendation is for children ages 4-8 and grade levels preschool-third grade. Each story features a title, scripture reference(s), three images & corresponding word, and the story text. There are always three images. The images are sprinkled through the story so children can read either on their own or along with you. This is known as the rebus format. I've been having my five-year-old son read this book every morning before school out load and he's doing great. The stories aren't overwhelming and he always wears a proud sense of accomplishment when he's finished reading. It's had such a positive effect on him! For parents and caregivers, there's a tips for using this book page that instructs how this book may be used. It's not necessary but it proves helpful to those that may need the guidance. Overall this a nice, not overwhelming version of the Word of God that can help children build confidence in their reading while growing their Faith in God. I certainly do recommend it.
Text: This is a really fun, interactive approach to story time. Each story is told with a mixture of simple text and a few image prompts that replace key words. This allows even young children to participate in “reading” the story. Illustrations: I love this style. It’s so fun, and (for me) a bit nostalgic. I love all the little details, and I love the watercolor technique. Cover: Good overall. Text treatment is a smidge out of date, but who’s gonna notice? Sometimes a little “bevel and emboss” does the trick.
Look, I'm Reading! Bible Storybook By Gwen Ellis is a new story book bible for young children featuring picture codes within the text. This book is perfect for emerging readers and pre-schoolers. By replacing key words with graphics, the child can fill in the story by looking at the picture which represents the missing word. The cartoon like drawings are simple- similar to a doodle. The child becomes an active participant of the story by looking at the image and by completing the sentences. This book is yet another way to add variety to bible storytelling. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this book published by Tommy Nelson for the purpose of writing this review.
Lately my three (almost four!) year old son has been asking me a lot of questions about God, Jesus, and the Bible. It absolutely delights my heart to see him thinking on these things and asking me about them, albeit however unprepared I sometimes feel to answer. Case in point - last Sunday on the way to church he was completely quiet in the backseat, until all of a sudden he told me that when he gets to heaven he is going to ask Jesus to turn him into Batman and did I think He would do that? Now that he is getting older, I am noticing him outgrowing the toddler bible storybooks we have around, so I was really interested in checking out this "Read and Share: Look, I'm Reading! Bible Storybook." What I appreciated from the start was the title included the word "storybook" rather than simply calling it a Bible. My son wanted to read it as soon as it arrived, and of course he asked for a few of his favorite Bible stories. I was happily surprised to see several included such as David and the Giant, Jonah Runs Away, and Jesus Stops a Storm. I was impressed to see over 90 stories included and organized into Old and New Testament. Each stories has a colorful illustration and fun pictograms for children to read along. In fact, since receiving the Bible storybook I've even caught my son "reading" through it on his own and retelling the stories. I would say it is a great fit for children preschool - early elementary aged. If you are in the market for a new children's Bible storybook, I would recommend checking this one out!
