In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” this week’s review of a children’s book isn’t a Christian work but still something homeschool kids and parents would appreciate!

 

Geronimo Stilton.  The Secret of the Sphinx. New York, NY: Papercutz, August 18th 2009. 56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the second graphic novel in the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel series published by Papercutz.  I read this after enjoying first volume.  Like the first one I read this to my daughters and they totally enjoyed it!  How much did they enjoyed it?  When I read it to them at night they tell me not to stop!  These books tell the story of a mouse Geronimo Stilton and his family and friends going into time in history through a time machine to stop the insidious plot of the Pirate Cats.  Besides the adventure long the way young readers will also learn about history.  As a parent passionate about history I like that!

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

James G. Stavridis.  Sea Power: The History and Geopolitics of the World’s Oceans. New York, NY: The Penguin Press, June 5th 2018. 384 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a wonderful and highly informative book on geopolitics.  The author James G. Stavridis is an accomplished US Naval Admiral and among his many accomplishment was being the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO towards the end of his career.  His perspective is quite insightful and I would say unique!  He’s not only looking at this in light of analysis and history but also shares his personal “sea stories” that makes this book all the more interesting.

This is the first graphic novel in the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel series published by Papercutz.  I read this to my daughters and they totally fell in love with it!  When I read it to them at night they tell me not to stop; that’s how much they enjoyed it.  I love how the book is a story of the mouse Geronimo Stilton and his family and friends going into time in history through a time machine and along the way young readers will also learn about history.  I really like that as a parent!

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is the sixth book I read from the “Short Studies in Biblical Theology” series published by Crossway.  I have immensely enjoyed the other five volumes that I read from this series and this work is no different.  This particular work explores the Lord’s Supper.

Paul Dini.  Batman: Private Casebook. New York, NY: DC Comics, December 23rd 2008. 160 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is another comic book on Batman.  This particular title is a collection of seven short stories or mini-chapters of short stories.  The writer Paul Dini was the producer and screen writer for Batman: The Animated Series and if you enjoyed those cartoons in the 90s you will also enjoy the same feel of short episodes in this book, though the illustrators did vary from story to story.  Overall it was a fun read.

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.

Ken Ham and Cindy Malott. Answers Book for Kids Volume 3: God and the Bible.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, March 27th 2009. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the third volume in the Answers Book for Kids series written by Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and published by Master Books.  My kids and I enjoyed the first two (review here and here) so we went forward to read together the third volume.  This particular book focuses on God and the Bible.  This book and others in this series uses a question and answer format in response to twenty two questions from kids.  I did not say this in my previous reviews but it stood out to me that when the book mentioned the kids’ age that asked the question it helped my kids realized they weren’t the only ones asking questions and this observation I hope leads them to think more about God and the Bible.  I appreciated that Ken Ham works with his co-author Cindy Malott to respond to these questions in a way that kids would be able to understand.  Before you make light of them I realized as a pastor and evangelists that some of these questions are also questions that adults asks.  I don’t doubt some parents will benefit from this themselves!

It seems the last few Wednesday on our blog has become a “wee-kids Wednesdays” with Christian children homeschool lessons and review of children’s book.  Maybe that should be an ongoing trend!  Here’s a review of a new Christian Children’s book that just came out yesterday!

Quina Aragon. Love Made.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, February 5th 2019.  23 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a children’s book on God’s creation.  The subtitle of the book is “A Story of God’s Overflowing, Creative Heart.”  It informs the reader of how God created everything out of love but there’s more to the story!  The writer Quina Aragon wrote a beautiful book and it was also beautifully illustrated by Scotty Reifsnyder.  I enjoyed reading this book to my young kids.
