My 8 year old son loves the books, I have purchased the rest of the series and he is always reading them. Books contain many wholesome Christian values written in an interesting way for kids to understand.
My son just turned 8 and has been engulfed in these stories for several months now; I am actually on here to order volumes 13 and up. Yes, the stories are based in a country setting in a period that has long been forgotten but he enjoys it just the same and even asks questions about different words or places that he doesn't understand. I like them because it teaches morals, values and even a conscience. He has mentioned several times how something is like...and then gives an example for how the Sugar Creek Boys have handled a situation. The time that we spend together reading these stories I not only LOVE but also helps spark conversations about situations he's faced with at school. Love this series! So glad it's still around!
My 9yr old daughter loves the books--and the best thing about it is that they are all books in the AR program for school (accelerated reader program) so she can read Christian based books for public school credit!
