I am always on the lookout for books that are fun to read with my children. I am not much of a person who enjoys fantasy books, but I had heard so much about this series that I wanted to give it a chance. It has been such a sweet thing for us to read together.
This book has a lot of action in it, which my son absolutely loves. My 6-year-old daughter enjoys it a lot, too, and they are always asking if we can read another chapter. Despite the action, they have not been scared at any point in the book. They love using their imagination to think what the characters must look like.
As a mom, I enjoy this book for a whole different reason. I absolutely love the imagery Priscilla Shirer uses to talk about God, Satan and spiritual warfare. It has allowed us to pause in the story and discuss what certain things could be depicting. I also enjoy that the book goes through what happens when we seek our own way and the easy way instead of following God’s way, which can be harder at times. That led to many discussions with my children.
I am looking forward to reading the next two books in this series now. Every time we pass it in the stores, the kids always point it out to me!
I received this book free from Lifeway.
