This is my favorite beginning reader! On the left side of the page is a black-and-white drawing of a Bible story, and on the right hand side of the page is a very simplified phonetic account of that story in large, plain type. When there is a difficult word, beyond the decoding skills of your young reader, a simple picture is drawn in place of the word so the story can still be read. There are 50 stories, each more difficult than the last, but all can be easily phonetically decoded. If your children know their Bible stories, it is fun to guess which story is being told. The back of the book contains a word list of new phonetic words introduced in each story. Hardcover, black-and-white drawings, from the Mennonites. 107 pages.
