The Runaway Son by Nick and Claire Page

The Runaway Son (Read with Me (Make Believe Ideas))In fun rhyming text The Runaway Son, written by Nick and Claire Page with illustrations by Sara Baker, tells the biblical story of the prodigal son in a modern day setting.  Cheeky Chad is the prodigal son, while Steady Eddie is his brother and Farmer Godfrey is his dad.

This is part of a Read With Me book series.  These books are designed to "develop the confidence of young readers".  They include a "ready to tell" section with pictures for children to put in order to retell the story, a picture dictionary, and activity and discussion suggestions.  Not all of the books are based on Bible stories but there are a number of them that are.

We borrowed this book from and friend and Anna and I thought it was great. I would love to find more of the series.
