A Bible book for kids learning to read

My five year old is reading (go Connor!), so is my 3 year old (Whoa! this homeschool thing started a fire I can't keep from blazing in my 3 year old, he just listens to me teaching my 5 year old and wa-la he's reading the 1st set of BOB books), and I've been trying to find not just good primers for early readers (Here and Here are some resources.) but also a Bible for children who are learning to read. I was really hoping to find some, you know, level 1, 2, 3, etc. paperback versions of different Bible stories, but instead I found this:

I started using it yesterday morning during our Bible time. I had Connor read the two page story from the Sermon on the Mount and he did it!!! Yeah! And he remembered the story much better than me reading it to him.

So far, looking through it, I'm very impressed with the way Karen Henley wrote it. I think it captures the heart of the passage of scripture without leaving out important things.

You can go here to read an excerpt.

Anyone else have a Bible learn-to-read source?

Thank you! We have one my husband got at Wal-Mart. Of course Daniel isn't anywhere near reading yet! ha!

Thank you. I have been looking for a learn-to-read Bible. xo

It is amazing how many more resources are available now, then when I started homeschooling on the mission field (Honduras) over twenty years ago.
