This is another excellent book that has helped us prepare for the upcoming Easter celebration, like his others do to lead us through the Advent season. We have all 4 of his books now and they are favorites, getting read over again year after year -- even by my now teens! (We started them as read alouds when they were small.) I can't recommend them highly enough. You won't regret this purchase.
My family is reading this book right now as we prepare for Resurrection Sunday and we are so enjoying it! My children ages 7-16 all look forward to me reading it before bed each night. We love these stories because the writing is so descriptive you feel as if you are there. Last night they were excited because they knew it was Jesus riding into Jerusalem.
Mr. Arnold Ytreeide has given us another excellent book to help focus our attention on what is truly important about the holidays. We started out with Jotham's Journey and Bartholomew's Passage, both advent devotionals, which as a mom, I loved the way the children could relate to the Bible through a story format. I was very excited to find that Mr. Ytreeide had written Amon's Adventure focusing on lent/Easter, and was not a bit disappointed in the quality of this devotion as well. I would highly recommend these devotions to anyone wanting to draw their children and families close to Jesus during these two important holidays.
This is the best book for a family to go through during lent. Our grandchildren are thrilled with the book and all adults learn something from it also. Advent and Lent are our most favorite holidays because of the Arnold Ytreeide books.
We received "Jotham's Journey" as a Christmas gift from friends over 10 years ago & it has been an Advent tradition to read it to our 6 children & now 2 grandchildren ever since. It takes a true Master Storyteller to intertwine the lives & characters in these books the way that the author does. Each year we wait with great anticipation to read one of these wonderful stories during our Christian holiday times.
