- Review by InkBlotsbyTRD.blogspot.com
Ruth and Naomi is a re-telling of the story of Naomi's family which can be found in the Bible in the book of Ruth. The story continues all the way through to the birth of Jesus, which I appreciate. I did find a couple inconsistencies/literary freedoms in this book, but overall I think it is well done and is easy to understand. The story is accompanied by big, colorful illustrations.
At the end of Ruth and Naomi is a page containing "People in Bible Times" (which has an illustration of Ruth and Naomi accompanied by short descriptions of each and quotes Ruth 2:12) and "Words to Treasure" (Ruth 1:16).
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.

My daughter is getting very good at reading so these "I Can Read" books are a super fast read for her now. She still enjoys them and I enjoy the discussions after.
