Here is the third book in the series written by Nancy I. Sanders.
For the other blog posts and reviews I have done on the books in this series, I have mainly focused on content and information included. This time, I would like to focus on the outside of the book.
The cover has a very nice feel to it. It’s that grippy plasticy stuff. I LOVE the feel of this stuff, whatever it is called.
The graphics on the front and back cover are beautifully illustrated and colored.
These books will be able to stand a little bit of roughness to the covers. It is thick enough that it won’t rip easily and will be a little bit more resistant to bending.
That seems perfect for young readers!
I definitely recommend that these books be on any homeschool Christian bookshelves. Even personal home libraries! Young readers can learn while they are reading a beautiful and easy gripped book.
I don’t believe that we will get the last book of the series, because my son isn’t interested in reading that one and my daughter is a little too old for them.
**DISCLAIMER – I got this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
I was a little bit disappointed when I saw the reading level of this book. I was not aware that it was for a little bit younger kids than my own.
With that said, it’s still a great book. My son is just above this reading level, which is listed on the back cover as RI 2.1, RL 2.3 and RI 2.5. He looked the book over and thought that it did look interesting enough for him to read anyway. It will be added to his pile of books to take on our vacation next month.
My daughter, who is 11, said this was way too young for her. She also said it’s too boring and school-like. But she did express an interest in reading the Mary book of this series.
I have read through this book and think that it is a very good choice for young readers to introduce them to Bible people. The book has photos and illustrations through out, to make sure and keep the interest of readers.
Definitions of words are included for many and added as an extra decorative box on some of the pages. The word is also highlighted in colors through out the book when there is a definition that accompanies it.
This book has sections on Bible heroes, extra unknown or maybe known facts and many other little things spread through the book. I really like how well everything is explained.
I would definitely recommend this book for those of you with younger readers. The whole series would be excellent additions to any homeschool, or home, library.
