About the Book:Joseph may be his father’s favorite son, but his brothers feel differently and sell him into slavery in Egypt. In this Level 2 I Can Read written and illustrated in the tradition of the bestselling Adventure Bible, find out how God turns a bad situation into a big blessing.Perfect for beginning readers ages 4-8, learning Bible stories on their own.My Review:Poor Joseph, he was blessed with a set of siblings that weren't particularly fond of him. He was thrown into a pit and then sold into slavery. He was put through the worst of the worst yet God brought him out of it and elevated him. What a great story of perseverance! He done so much with all that God had given him. He eventually was able to make amends with his brothers and save many people with the blessings God bestowed upon him.A great story perfect for the ages of 4-8. A level 2 reader that is great for beginning readers but they will need some help.Excellent story for children!**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
The one tells the story of Joseph - all the way from the point of his father giving him the coat of many colors to Jacob and the family moving to Egypt. It carefully skips over the part with Potiphar's wife saying only that the rich man Joseph was sold to threw him in jail even though he had not done anything wrong. It includes the quote from Genesis 50 when Joseph's brothers are afraid of him where Joseph says "What you meant for evil, God used for good to save us all." (Although the quote is taken out of context - in Scripture it doesn't happen until the death of Jacob, in the story it happens right when Joseph reveals himself to his brothers.)
There are several books in the I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series, and Joseph the Dreamer and Facing the Blazing Furnace are two of the newest releases. Our family does not own the Adventure Bible, NIV or the Adventure Bible for Early Readers, so I cannot compare these books to those (to see if the content is duplicated). We do, however, own both the Adventure Bible for Toddlers and the Adventure Bible Storybook, and I can tell you that the wording and illustrations are not duplicated across these three editions. The books in the I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series are worded with simpler phrasing and shorter sentences than you will find in the Adventure Bible Storybook.Joseph the Dreamer is a simplified re-telling of the story of the life of Joseph which can be found in the Bible in the book of Genesis. Overall I think it is well done and is easy to understand. The story is accompanied by big, colorful illustrations.At the end of Joseph the Dreamer is a page containing "People of the Bible" (which has an illustration of Jacob and Joseph accompanied by short descriptions of each and quotes Genesis 49:25) and "Life in Bible Times: Joseph's Colorful Coat" that gives a short explanation of the qualities of Joseph's coat/robe and why it made his brothers jealous.The I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series are categorized as reading level 2 ("Reading with Help") and the stories do not feel "choppy" like you might find in some learn-to-read books. With a retail price under $4 per book, I find these books to be a great value.FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
I like the I Can Read! Adventure Bible series. Joseph the Dreamer is especially wonderful for boys. In the story Joseph suffers at the hands of his brothers, goes on to fulfill God's plan and learns to forgive. The story is simple, yet holds a great message. If you have an early or independent reader, this series is a great addition to their library. David Miles creates colorful illustrations that enhance the story.I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
