“I Can Read God’s Word” is all about God. It’s a long book of many different stories based on different scriptures. It is very easy to read. I read it very quickly.
Each story begins with a helping page. On this page there is the scripture, the ‘Big Word,’ sounds and blends from the story. Next is the story with lots of cool pictures. The pictures are colorful, fun and funny!
I felt happy and great because I read about God. I know He would want me to read this. I think other kids will feel good, too, after reading this book. I think the author wrote this book so kids would learn about God.
Parent note: I love how “I Can Read God’s Word” by Phil A. Smouse is set up. Grace read it without me. I wish we had gone through it together so we could have made better use of the helping page. I will do that with my 4-year-old.
