A Father’s Love is a level three I Can Read! based on the NIV Adventure Bible—the number one Bible for kids. In this retelling of the story of the prodigal son, newly independent readers learn about how great a father’s love can be as they follow a young man who goes out on his own and wastes his inheritance. With engaging illustrations and age-appropriate vocabulary, this series is great for children almost ready for their first chapter books.
This particular book details the story of the Prodigal Son in a way that children can understand and appreciate. They also very clearly dictate the comparison of this story to the Heavenly Father and his love for us as sinners. The pictures are engaging, and the words very appropriate for a level two reader. (I often find the levels are way off, but these seemed to match my two six-year-old boys in their reading ability.) While my boys needed help with a few of the names, generally, it was a book that challenged them but that they could read on their own.
We are owners of the Adventure Bible and this is the fourth reader I have been given the opportunity to read.

This one was equally well-received by kindergarten boys and is a welcome edition to our library.
