Read Aloud Bible Stories, Volumes 1-4 Reviews
We have the first four volumes, and they're wonderful, both as read-to stories for little ones and first readers for those who are learning to read. This volume is very different; the stories are in more stilted language and don't make quite as much sense. I was quite disappointed with this volume, but I would highly recommend the first four volumes for kids ages 2-8 (even my 10- and 12-year old enjoy them!)
Purchased this book along with the other volumes. I was not sure how my children would take to the books. To my surprise they gravitated to them on the first reading. The size of the book (12in. x 8in.) along with the colorful pages give appeal to the little ones. The biblical messages are geared to toddlers simple yet effective. I recommend this series. Well worth the purchase.
My 3 year old granddaughter loves these stories. Yes, as noted in other reviews, the sentences are short and very "child like", but that's exactly what I wanted. At the end of each story is a "What Did you Learn" page with facts from the story (From The Baby in the Basket: "God told the mommy what to do. God told Big Sister what to do. God knew how to take care of baby Moses. He knows how to take care of you too)" Once she is reading, this will be the perfect book for her to read aloud. The print is big and pictures are colorful. While visiting at my house, we read these stories every night for 5 consecutive nights.
Each of the books in all four volumes of the Read Aloud Bible Stories are TREASURES. When our four children were little, we must have read many of the stories several times a day. The illustrations are bright and wonderful and so engaging and thoughtful. And Lindvall brings out the best storyteller in all of us to engage children by including things like, "Now lots of people were walking. Step, step, step. And lots of people were talking. Talk, talk, talk."
These five volumes of Bible stories for ages 1-5 are excellent. The author writes the truth of God's word in a way that holds the attention of the toddler as well as the preschooler. I used these books with my children and now buy them for the grandchildren.
My grandma had the first volume for me when I was a kid and I went searching for this set to read to my infant son. I like that the pictures are brightly colored, yet simple. The text is simple and repetitive. From a Christians' point of view - I love that my son is learning Bible stories in a simple format that he'll be able to grasp in a few years. From a teacher's point of view - the repetitive nature of the text lends itself to helping children learn to read.
Clear concepts beautifully illustrated stretching out the story step by step to draw children's attention into the narrative. Perfect for ages 1-6. I bought all 5 volumes for my grand children because they teach the foundations of the gospel of Jesus Christ. My grand children are riveted by these books!
This series of books has been my twins' favorite book for bible stories ever since they were babies! The stories are simple and broken down into words they can relate to and the illustrations are big, and bold and grab their attention. My daughter could re-tell you the stories from memory at the age of three and now my kids are 5 1/2 they still request this book. Highly recommend!!
