4+ for READ-to-Me
8+ for READ-on-my-own.
This book is an effective read-to-me version for young children, as well as a good reader for kids with good reading skills and comprehension.
Children’s Bible (circa 1965)
7+ for READ-to-Me
9+ for READ-on-my-own
This is a very well written, true-to-the-text Bible written for kids over 50 years ago. We found in our home if we raise the bar, our child has followed and done well with this book.
It appears out of print but there are a lot of copies out there. I do recommend this book to read with your child. Adept readers can pick this up and read it with occasional help with word definition from an adult.
My only issue with this book: Jesus is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed American. Besides not having a physical description of Christ in scripture, being God was born as a Middle-Eastern Jewish man I surmise his appearance was otherwise.
1+ for READ-to-Me
This is an excellent READ-to-ME book for younger kids and can even serve as a self reader for Kindergarten/1st Grade kids. It tells the story of the Rescuer coming to save us.
This book is available in the Redeemer Kids Ministry Area
