Elijah, God's Mighty Prophet

I think your child is going to love this book because it's full of action-packed pictures and of course, retells the exciting story of Elijah confronting the prophets of Baal.  It includes the tale of Elijah being fed by ravens and later living with a widow and her son, helping them through the famine in the land with a miracle from God.  In other words, it's a great introduction of the Biblical story.

This Zonderkidz's "I Can Read!" Adventure Bible story was illustrated by David Miles.  I love the contrasting colours used throughout the story.  You can see how the fire and darkness contrast on the cover illustration, but each picture inside sort of "jumps" at you in the same way.  The facial expressions on the people are also nicely detailed.

It's definitely a book for a smaller child, although my 9 1/2 year old son read it for homeschool and enjoyed it very much.
