I received a copy of Moses Leads The People for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.
Moses Leads The People is a retelling of the familiar Bible story about how God used Moses to free the Israelites from captivity in Egypt. It is a Level 2 book, which is designed for newly independent readers and is part of the I Can Read! series based on the bestselling Adventure Bible — the #1 Bible for kids.
Moses Leads The People has a total of 32 pages which is short enough for a kid’s attention span, yet long enough to give a good retelling of the well-known Bible story.
Moses asked God, “Are you sure I am the right man?”
The Israelites are in slavery in Egypt, and God wants Moses to help set them free. But Moses is afraid no one will listen to him. And the Pharaoh is stubborn! He doesn’t want to let God’s people go. Even when God sends many plagues to Egypt, the Pharaoh still says no.
Then God sends the tenth plague. Will Pharaoh finally let God’s people go?
I read this story to my 3 year old who so far only knows his ABCs and isn’t really reading yet. Given that this book is designed for kids who can already read with minimal supervision, I appreciate the fact that the authors used simple words so that my son can still follow the story even though the book was written with bigger kids in mind.
Because I’m pretty sure my son didn’t understand everything I read to him, I just made sure I pointed to the illustrations to make the story come alive in his imagination. I think the illustrations are really nice. But there were just a few spreads that I think could use some lighter colors — like the pages for the burning bush and the egyptian slaves. Or perhaps I just really prefer that the words I read on books have a light background.
All in all, I think this is a good book to add to my family’s collection. I love that I’m able to read a Bible story to my son with a book that’s both age-appropriate and accurate.
BUY IT! Moses Leads The People is available for purchase at Zondervan.com for only $3.99. You can also get it from Amazon.com for the same price.

This would be a great book for my grandkids storytime. Thank you for sharing
Although my grand kids are still young I love to read to them and bible stories are mine and their favorite. Thank you for this thoughtful review.
My child loves reading books, and especially adventure kind of books. he is so engrossed in reading and this book especially he wont move until he finishes and then comes up and tells me about the book.
That sounds like a nice change from all of the typical books for children that are out there today. It’s actually a good story that I think will hold the interest of a child.
This is a great book to read to the kids and get them involved in, especially if they are always asking those questions about god. Great book to learn a lot from!
I loved your review on the book Moses Leads The People! I just love how the illustrations are on these Bible Books and they are so vibrant and made for kids! These books are an excellent way to bring the stories in the Bible to your kids! Whether your child can read or not, having a book read to a child is a wonderful thing to do. Just like you said, you point to the pictures while you are reading! I would absolutely Love To get the collection of Bible Books for my kids! They both love to be read to! Just another thing I added to my “wish list” of things I really want to get! Thanks again for the review and the information on the book! I really do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

This sounds like a wonderful book. I remember a friend who used to tell Moses’s story to her little boy who stuttered – he was very self-concious. But then she explained how Moses stuttered, and yet ook what God chose him for! A great story!
Sounds like a great book.
Thank you for the wonderful review of Moses Leads the People! It looks from the outside cover that it has some wonderful illustrations! I loved reading to my kids and now to my grand kids whenever I get the chance! They may not be able to read for themselves quite yet, however, they love looking at pictures and having someone read the book to them! This is a terrific book! Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us! I truly do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

I have to say this story is amazing,,, I know God likes to use people to do his job, or what he has planned out…… I often wonder when something is going to happen again to where God will decend upon us or show us something .. After all we do not live the the biblical times and things have changed……….. I never hear about GOD saving that person from that ship or someone leading his people today..
I didn’t know “I Can Read” had Bible books. This is great. I will be on the lookout for them for the grandchildren.
I really enjoyed reading your terrific review on “Moses Leads the People”! I think this is an excellent book to read to your kids! Even if they cannot read yet, they know how to listen and look at pictures. Who knows what goes through their little minds while your reading about the story of Moses. It’s definitely a good book to have in your library. I really do like the book a lot! Thanks again for the review and information about the book Moses Leads the People! I truly do appreciate it! Thanks, Michele 🙂

Thanks for the review i really love this and would enjoy reading it with my grandson
Thanks for the review. I am considering for my grandchildren
I love I Can Read books they are great for readers starting out and also do have nice pictures like you said for the younger kids that still need read too and they are not so long that when you get read it again you are not taking another long bit of time to do it
This is PERFECT for my nephew! Thank you
I have always said to plant the seed to learn about our Heavenly Father early!! They can grow with Biblical guidance throughout their lives. The Bible is very interesting – with adventures and mysteries to keep children and adults interested and wanting to learn more. I love books like these for children with illustrations, etc. to keep their attention. They will need God their whole life and HE will be there for them – so teach your children well!! The Bible stories are NOT fantasies!!
so cute such a great story
It does look like a nice book. It seems like a great way to introduce Bible stories to the young child.
This sounds like a great book for small children and thank you for the review.
This book sounds like a great one to share with my niece! Thanks for the review!
