Children’s Corner: 5-Minute Adventure Bible Stories

30 Aug

Children will love these timeless 5-minute Bible adventures, featuring classic stories of Noah’s ark, Daniel and the lions, the birth of Jesus, and more! With text and art from the bestselling Adventure Bible brand, more than 30 stories come alive with bright, colorful illustrations and fun, interactive elements. Each of these stories can be shared in just five minutes, making this collection perfect for families on the go, children learning to read, and bedtime. 5-Minute Adventure Bible Stories features a cover with eye-catching foil.

 

 

My Impressions:

I had a conversation with a co-worker about the challenges of getting children to read. Her son is a visual learner and has trouble with comprehension. Because he is uninterested in what he is reading, he rushes through assignments, losing both the ideas behind the stories and the joy that reading can bring. 5-Minute Adventure Bible Stories may just be the right kind of book for those struggling like my friend’s child. Each story is boldly illustrated bringing favorites from the Bible to life. The vocabulary is challenging, but fun, with lots of words that cause a child to visualize the scene presented. For example, in the first story in the book, The Adventure Begins, the water that God created is described as trickling, bubbling, and whooshing. Fun and vivid! There are over 30 stories from both the Old and New Testaments and each takes just a short time to read — perfect for those who are learning to read or struggling to maintain attention. But . . . I bet your child will not be able to stop at just one! There is an added bonus at the end of each story — a truth to meditate upon and a Bible verse to memorize. So whether you are looking for a book for family reading time or a book to help stimulate your child’s love of reading, 5-Minute Adventure Bible Stories is a great choice.

Audience: children ages 4-8.

It’s time for Noah’s big adventure! A rainstorm is coming, and Noah needs to build an ark and find two of each animal to keep warm and dry inside. This retelling of the story of Noah’s Ark will take little ones from building a big boat to seeing a rainbow in the sky after the storm.

In Noah And The Noisy Ark, a favorite Bible story is told in a simple manner for the smallest of readers. And because it is part of the Beginner’s Bible series, parents can be assured that God’s word is faithfully followed. Colorful illustrations portray the days of Noah — the disobedience of the people and the faithfulness of Noah. This book is a sturdy board book with a built in handle so that your child can carry it around the house or on car trips. Expect this one to be read over and over! But isn’t that great?

My Impressions:

The Little Bible Heroes Flip Over Book, Miriam/Daniel, is perfect to encourage your child in reading while introducing them to God’s word. With stories written for boys and girls, this book provides complex sentence structure and varied vocabulary to sharpen your child’s comprehension skills. There are discussion questions at the end to further conversation about how God works in people’s lives and scripture to reiterate His promises.

My Impressions:

Two stories taken from the popular NIV Adventure Bible are available individually to help your child progress in his/her reading skills. Facing The Blazing Furnace and Joseph The Dreamer are well-loved stories from the Old Testament. In these retellings targeted toward developing readers, the emphasis is on God’s provision and faithfulness even in times of trial and temptation. Both books have colorful and detailed illustrations that support the narrative. I think these books are especially good for young boys. I know that when my boys were young, practicing reading was way down on their list of things to do. But both of these books show young men of faith who impacted their world for God. So if you are looking for books that will keep your young reader interested, bolster their knowledge of the Bible and encourage their faith, while sharpening their skills, check out both of these title.
