We purchased the first set of the Cul-de-sac kids series for our grandson. When he comes for an overnight we take turns reading to each other. I find the characters in the stories exemplify Christian values in everyday life situations. Our grandson and I share a special time together with the Cal-de-sac kids.
My 8 year old son loves these books - in fact he literally tears though them as soon as we get the set! They are good books that don't necessarily speak about God a lot, but do teach a lesson in each one. What I also like is there isn't anything in the books that I have to worry about him reading, like there are in some other so called "childrens books". I would recommend these highly.
