What I love about this book is that the authors have brought together a super popular game and paired it so cleverly with the word of God and applying practical lessons into real life. With this book tweens and teens will gain knowledge of the game as well as thinking about lessons learnt from the game in a biblical perspective.
It was clear in those early words that life for Kane, Sam and Angie was always about living on edge, their days filled with fear and placing invisible barriers around themselves as a means of getting through everyday. I felt my stomach sink and my eyes water as I read those initial perspectives from Kane and Sam, such intensity I have not felt before, the characters minds fueled with sadness and intense fear and mine also.
“We are all different , as different as can be…But now look closer” and just like that I was engaged from start to finish, the author had captured my attention and imagination from the first page.
Today at 11am was National simultaneous Storytime (NSS) which is an annual Australian event that is aimed at encouraging young Australians to read and enjoy books. More information can be found at ALIA.
This years book is The Cow Tripped Over the Moon by Tony Wilson and Laura Wood. It is such a fun story, and in celebration of NSS I thought I would share my thoughts on this book.
When I first started reading this book, I immediately thought Indiana Jones with a modern day twist. This fast paced adventure will engage your readers from ages 9 and above.
DK continually creates outstanding informative books for readers, and How to be a Scientist is one of the best yet. There is so much to love about this book and it all begins with the bright cover that instantly makes you interested in what other exciting things may be in the book.
