Our family..14 year old son and girls 10 and 12 loved this book and the others in the series. Our son is not a reader, but he throughly enjoyed me reading this book. Great family read! Well written Good message!
Excellent adventure story. My children (and myself) were on the edges of our seats each night, and they always begged to read more. This brought to life, the true story and meaning of Christmas. We were all so excited for Jotham to find his family, and for the birth of the Messiah. It really made this Christmas season very meaningful! Lots of detail and adventure, without being too scary. My youngest is 4 and she was not afraid of Jotham's encounters. My oldest is 9 and it was perfect for his age, since Jotham is 10. We cannot recommend this story enough for Advent!!!!
We purchased this book on a friend's recommendation, assuming it would hold the interest of our 9-year-old son. We discovered that the well-written story and short devotionals after each chapter spoke to everyone in the family, adults included. We've thoroughly enjoyed this nightly treat and look forward to doing the same next year with the following book!
This book is an excellent read-aloud for the advent season. The well written story portrays the salvation message and the true meaning of Christmas in a way that will stick with your children. My children, 4, 7 and 9 were eager to read every night and even my 4 year old sat and listened with interest and anticipation. The story opened the door for some great family discussions!
