“A Deaf Man” is the eleventh of sixteen books in “The Jesus Series” for 4-5 year olds to read themselves. Books 9-16 tell what Jesus came to do based on Isaiah 61:1-2 and Luke 4:16-21. This book teaches how Jesus had power to heal a deaf man.
There are various ways for adults to help a child reading this book.
One way is to help the child memorise the selected Bible verse and its reference:
“The people who lived near Lake Galilee said, ‘Jesus does everything well. He makes the deaf hear!’…” Mark, chapter 7, verse 37.
On each page of the book there is a part for an adult to read (in small print) along with a sentence printed in larger writing for a child to read. It is recommended that the adult reads their part first and then the child so that a shared reading experience is developed.
Book 11, “A Deaf Man”, introduces the letter sounds K and L, and offers help with writing the letters, as well as giving suggested activities, reading tips, charts to aid recall, and sight vocabulary words that children need in order to read the book.
