Book Review: Adventure Bible Miracles of Jesus

We love the Adventure Bible in our house!  My daughter (8) uses it for our Bible Study time and we use the devotional during our Bible time in our homeschool.  With an easy reading level (I can read level 2) and beautiful illustrations, the Adventure Bible has brought the Miracles of Jesus to life for children.

Included in this ZonderKids book are the story of the following miracles of Jesus:  raising Jarius's daughter from the dead, healing the sick woman (It is the woman who bleeds, but that specific issue is not addressed), and feeding the 5,000.

My favorite part of this book are the amazing illustrations.  They are calm, yet colorful and more true to the context than some other children's Bible illustrations.  The writing was simple and clear, very easy for my 3rd grader to read and comprehend.  The only downside of the reader level is that some of the names are perhaps harder to pronounce and read independently (Galilee, Jarius).

The book tells the miracles in a wonderful way and clearly lay out the purpose and mission of Jesus.  It would be an excellent to any Sunday school room, library, or home book basket.
