Moses Leads the People

Moses Leads the People is a level 2 "I Can Read!" book based upon Zondervan's popular Adventure Bible for kids. It offers a condensed version of the most famous parts of Moses' story:

Moses meets God in a burning bush. God tells him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. Moses obeys, taking his brother Aaron with him as spokesman. But when they confront the Pharaoh, he won't release the Israelite slaves. So God sends the plagues. Finally the Pharaoh relents and Moses leads his people away from Egypt, with God at the head - a cloud-pillar during the day and a pillar of fire at night. Soon, the Israelites spot the Pharaoh's army chasing them. God tells Moses to part the Red Sea, and the Israelites escape. As soon as the Israelites pass, the water rushes back and covers Pharaoh's army.

What I Like: This is a nicely condensed version of the Bible story, covering all the basic facts. David Miles' illustrations are engaging and really add to the book.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: about 4 - 8.
