Editorial Reviews

Youngsters learn about the parable of the good Samaritan in this level two Good Samaritan-I Can Read book for developing readers which is about the second grade. The story begins with Jesus teaching the crowds until a man who wanted to test Jesus interrupted to ask Jesus 'what he needed to do to ensure 'eternal life.'Colorful, life-like illustrations of Jesus, the 'smart man' who asked questions, robbers and the Jewish man who was robbed, injured and left 'in the dirt at the side of the road' keep pages turning to learn what happens next.Colorful and humorous caricatures of the priest who crossed the road to avoid the man in the road and the temple helper who stepped over the injured man portray what Jesus meant when He said to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Bible verses from Luke 10:27, 36-37 and a brief summary of who Samaritans were complete this faith-based story.
