Children’s Corner: A Father’s Love (I Can Read!/Adventure Bible)

23 Feb

732404A Father’s Love is a level two I Can Read! based on the NIV Adventure Bible. In it, young readers learn about how great a father’s love can be for his child. At this read-alone level, newly independent readers follow a young man who decides to go out on his own, with his inheritance. He wastes his money and makes bad choices but eventually realizes that home and family are more important than anything. When he goes home to make amends, his father welcomes his son home with open arms and joy.

Written for the newly independent reader, vocabulary and content is at a more advanced reading level, making this series appropriate for children almost ready for their first chapter books.

This I Can Read! series of Bible stories makes use of the unique features found in the NIV Adventure Bible such as “People in Bible Times” and “Words to Treasure”.

Content aligns with the Common Core Standards for informational reading.

My Impressions:

I wish when my children were learning to read, we had had books like this. A Father’s Love is not only an excellent tool to reinforce reading skills, but also a great complement for teaching what God’s love looks like. With its detailed illustrations and vocabulary that encourages and challenges, it is a book kids with love to read on their own.


Audience: children ages 6-10.
