Joseph may be his father’s favorite son, but his brothers feel differently about him. So they sell him into slavery in Egypt. Will Joseph forgive his brothers? Can God turn a bad situation into a big blessing?
This is a Level Two I Can Read! book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences. It aligns with guided reading level J and will be of interest to children Pre-K to 3rd grade.

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.

Joseph the Dreamer by Adventure Bible is told very well. It tells how the brothers sold Joseph, but it leaves out how especially mean the brothers were. I feel that the Adventure Bible's interpretation is most appropriate for my seven year old.
The text is simple and plain and I appreciate that it has the "I Can Read" level so we knew before we even began to read it that my son would read it well. The pictures help tell the story nicely. We all know how the story ends, but it is one we need to read over and over again to learn forgiveness and trusting Gods plan. (Posted on 12/19/2015)

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!
