Born and raised in Michigan, David spent his childhood sloshing through creek beds, climbing trees, and creating numerous baked goods.  That spirit of adventure and curiosity often finds its way into his illustrations through quirky characters and hidden surprises.  After spending a decade in Philadelphia and New York pursuing his artistic dreams, David has moved back to the familiar surroundings of Michigan.  Now, when he's not drawing and painting he still enjoys a good romp through the woods.

There are several books in the I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series, and Ruth and Naomi is one of the newest releases. Our family does not own the Adventure Bible, NIV or the Adventure Bible for Early Readers, so I cannot compare these books to those (to see if the content is duplicated). We do, however, own both the Adventure Bible for Toddlers and the Adventure Bible Storybook, and I can tell you that the wording and illustrations are not duplicated across these three editions. The books in the I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series are worded with simpler phrasing and shorter sentences than you will find in the Adventure Bible Storybook.

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.

I love this tender story of honor from Ruth and Naomi. I love teaching my kids the importance of loving family and being dedicated to each other. I love to teach my kids how to encourage and build each other up and I feel that this story can help teach dedication and encouragement.

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.
