|A Father's Love|
It's time for a book review and giveaway! Be sure to read below how to enter for the drawing.
I’m so glad Zonderkidz is publishing I Can Read! books like A Father’s Love, part of the NIV Adventure Bible series.
A Father’s Love is a level 2 book, which means it is a high interest story for developing readers.
The full-page, colorful illustrations are beautiful. Most of the thirty-two pages contain thirty words or less. Sentences are broken up into about ten words per line. The print is large and easy to read.
Of course, this is the familiar story Jesus told about a father and his sons. One son leaves his father and squanders his inheritance until he is eating with pigs. He decides to go home and ask for his father’s forgiveness. If you haven’t heard the story, I’ll not tell you the ending, but I will tell you that not everyone is happy to see the prodigal son.
This is a great story to share with youngsters. Most first – third grade students will find the text within their reading range.
A Father’s Love will open up discussions on responsibility, forgiveness, jealousy, and acceptance.
I highly recommend this well-written and beautifully illustrated book.
In fact, I plan to give a copy of this book away this week. Everyone who leaves a comment below will have their name placed in a drawing for the book. We’ll announce the winner at 3:00 p.m. (EST) March 7, 2015.
[Congratulations to book winner, Jennifer R.! I'll contact you concerning a mailing address.]
