This is part of the “I Can Read Book!” series. The series includes a large number of secular titles, while “Moses Leads the People” is a version of the Exodus story, written for juveniles ages 4-8. This one is designated as Reading Level 2. Reading this with a first grader; he needed some extra help with the words. With a second grader; she needed minimal help with a few unfamiliar words, and with a fourth grader who sailed through without any difficulty. All three children had good things to say about it.
The story is told in a simple condensed way, with full color illustrations on every page. Two of the kids said the artwork was very important to them in understanding the story, while the third said that he enjoyed hearing a Bible story written with kids in mind.
This book is based on the Adventure Bible for kids, which I have no experience with. However, based on the reactions of the children I read this book with, it is a great way to reach kids with Bible stories, while also instilling in them a love and affection for reading in general.
For its appeal to the young ones, this book gets five of five stars.
