Our family loves these books - this is our second year using them...last year we did "Jotham's Journey". My kids are now 9 and almost 7 - I would caution about reading this with much younger kids as some of the drama is pretty intense, and the readings are fairly lengthy (takes us about 10-15 minutes to get through the day's chapter). But our kids absolutely love it and cannot wait to get on with the story each night!!!! My husband and I love the devotional tie-ins at the end of each chapter too; makes it more meaningful for the family. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! :)
This is great historical fiction for Advent season, and the little discussions after each reading are very helpful in helping children learn from the story. Some of the content may be a little scary for very young children though.
