Review: Read and Share: Stories About Jesus

This school year I am homeschooling my kids for catechism (or Faith Formation as it is called now).  I have the book that is part of the curriculum our church uses but it can be a bit boring.  The stories in Read and Share: Stories about Jesus are just the right length for short attention spans.  At this age my kids don't really understand a story read straight from the bible with out lots of explanation.  This book takes those well know stories of Jesus from the bible but uses language that is easy for them to understand.  My daughter is also reading on her own and the language in the stories is well with in her expertise.  This book is aimed toward toddler and babies, as it is a board book, but I find that it works well for older kids too.
Read and Share: Stories about Jesus By Gwen Ellis includes 13 well know stories about Jesus from the bible.  Each two page spread has one story and picture(s) to go with the story.  I like that the book also lets you know the exactly where the story is in the bible.  I was also very happy that they included the story of Jesus healing the blind man as it is one of my kids favorites.  A very well written version of bibles stories aimed toward kids and in words they will easily understand.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
