Book Review- "the Good Samaritan"
Ever wonder why they called him the “Good” Samaritan? Find out why in this level 2 I Can Read, written in the tradition of the popular Adventure Bible.
Jewish people and the Samaritans were enemies … they would never have considered helping one another. So what happens when a Jew is robbed, and left on the side of the road to die? Who stops to help? Read as Jesus tells a remarkable story about a man who serves his neighbor as God would want. Perfect for beginning readers ages 4-8, learning Bible stories on their own.
This is a great level 2 "I Can Read" book that is only $2.79 on Zondervan! A level 2 "I Can Read' book means it is a "high interest story for developing readers" and "engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play for developing readers." A huge THANK YOU to Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.
The pictures are great in this easy to read story. I like this Biblical story because it can lead to many great discussions, from what is a Samaritan to deep level self analyze of how you would act in a similar situation.
I really enjoyed that story didn't just jump into the story of the Samaritan but rather had many great nuggets of truth in the beginning from Jesus. My favorite line to discuss before the actual Samaritan story is found on page 7, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul. Love him with all your strength and all your mind."
Overall I love these "I Can Read" stories and the price is perfect as we get geared up for Christmas shopping!
