1 Stars Out Of 5
Disappointed ~ not for Christian families.
October 5, 2011
I purchased this book to go along with our elementary geography & cultures study we are doing in our homeschool. It took about 5 minutes upon receipt for me to decide this is not a book that I am comfortable reading to my children. I was expecting imaginative fairy tales and adventures in different cultures. It is that. However, it also has lots of mysticism and anti-Christian themes intertwined. To make this review completely honest, I want to make it known I've only read two stories out of the book and skimmed the rest. Yet, I saw enough to know that I didn't want to read anymore to my children. The first story I read spoke of a witch casting a spell and the second story I read was about a false god and other gods. The first two stories I wanted to read were from Mexico and Brazil ~ the two countries we have studied so far. I was disappointed that the stories could not leave out the anti-Christian sentiment. We are a Christian family, and I know I can find better material to fill our children's minds with that have Christ-honoring stories. I'm disappointed. This book looked wonderful, and I was highly anticipating its arrival. I guess you can't judge a book by its cover.
