My son loves the Sugar Creek stories! He is an all around outdoor kind of boy, so the books are perfect! Each book has Christian morals, while reading about boys having fun and being boys. My favorite aspect of the books is seeing the goodness of the characters getting into my son's heart-priceless:)
The books are paperback, but the stories far outweigh their presentation.
My 7 year old son loved the first series #1-7. We read 1 to 2 chapters a night. Each book is packed with daily adventures that a group of neighborhood boys experience and how they use their christian principles and faith to get through them. EXCELLENT SERIES!!! I bought this next series for him for Christmas.
