There are several books in the I Can Read! / Adventure Bible series, and Noah's Voyage and Brave Queen Esther are two 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.
At the end of Noah's Voyage is a page containing "People in Bible Times" (which has an illustration of Noah and a dove accompanied by Genesis 6:18) and "Did You Know?" (which gives details about the size of the ark and what it was made of).
Brave Queen Esther is a re-telling of the story of Esther (also known as Hadassah). The original story can be found in the Bible in the book of Esther. The re-telling of this story is done well, is easy to understand, and is accompanied by big, colorful illustrations.
At the end of Brave Queen Esther is a page containing "People of the Bible" (which has illustrations of Esther and Mordecai accompanied by Esther 4:14) and "Did You Know?" (which gives details about the festival of Purim).
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.FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
