My husband has been reading a chapter a night to my eight-year-old son at bedtime. They are relatively short and easy to read. They are very uplifting, encouraging and make for some wonderful bedtime discussion. My husband is talking to my son about praying for what God has planned for his life like the boys in this series. Brings tears to my eyes!
These books give a 1 chapter summary of 10 boys (per book) who accomplished great things. I was hoping for more in-depth bios of fewer boys. (I was under the impression that it was 10 boys total, not 10 per book.) My son (8) said that he liked the books, and I suppose it would be good to spark interest and start further study on some of these men.
Wonderful, inspiring books for boys & girls alike!

I bought this set and the Ten Girls Who set for my 8-year-old daughter. The box is sturdy and colorful. There are no illustrations inside. The stories are interesting and engaging, and there are questions at the end to help the young reader go deeper, including some Scripture passages to consider. Each story starts when the character was a child, which makes it easier for children to relate to. If you want to encourage your young reader to follow Christ and do great things for God, as others who have gone before have done, I would definitely recommend these books!
