This set of books is an excellent window into the lives of real people who lived boldly for Christ. We bought this as a gift for a friend's child who recently professed Christ as his savior and the family. The family says it is a great read-aloud for them and that they ALL enjoy it. We also bought the Ten Girls... set for his sister! Comes in a lovely box for good storage as well.
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.
