Review: A Father's Love by:Zondervan Publishing

 A Father's Love
About the Book:
A Father s Love is a level two I Can Read! based on the NIV Adventure Bible. In it, young readers learn about how great a father s love can be for his child. At this read-alone level, newly independent readers follow a young man who decides to go out on his own, with his inheritance. He wastes his money and makes bad choices but eventually realizes that home and family are more important than anything. When he goes home to make amends, his father welcomes his son home with open arms and joy.

Written for the newly independent reader, vocabulary and content is at a more advanced reading level, making this series appropriate for children almost ready for their first chapter books.

This I Can Read! series of Bible stories makes use of the unique features found in the NIV Adventure Bible such as People in Bible Times and Words to Treasure .

My Review:
 A very popular Bible story for adults as well as children is the story of the Prodigal Son. To summarize, it is a story of a son that thought that he could make it on his own out in the world without the help of his father. But after much trail and error, he realized that he would never make it without the love and protection of his father's love.  This story is to be compared to Our Father God & His love for us. He tries to get us to realize time and time again, that without Him we will never survive in this world. This world is not our true home, and as a result we should not want to be a part of it. This book is a level two, in the I Can Read series, so an early reader should be able to read it with some help. Perfect for the 4-8 age group, but also can be read aloud to a younger group.

 The Adventure Bible books are exquisitely drawn and illustrated. The full color illustrations are also something my son and I enjoy as we read along.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from my participation in the Z Blog Squad.
