Publisher's Description

Read the true story of Corrie ten Boom, who saved hundreds of Jewish people during World War II.

In 1940, the Germans invaded the Netherlands, and Corrie ten Boom and her family helped to hide as many Jewish people as possible. They even had a secret room built in her bedroom.

Corrie and her sister were caught by the German army and sent to a concentration camp. Corrie’s trust in God gave her the strength to go on until the war ended. From then on, Corrie talked about her life to big crowds, saying, “There’s no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still

This beautifully illustrated children's biography of Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) is part of a series designed to show kids that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

Editorial Reviews

Courage, intrigue, sacrifice and grief combined with a deep faith in Christ make Corrie's life an inspiration for parents and children alike. Imagine the impact this book could have on the next generation—it's like gospel dynamite! -- Linda Allcock (Author, Deeper Still)

Corrie ten Boom’s life will impact your children and show them what it means to live for God. -- Barbara Reaoch (Director, Children's Division, Bible Study Fellowship)

This is a great resource for churches, families, Christian schools, and homeschoolers. The biography is brief and historically accurate, and designed to hold a child’s attention. The author gives just the right amount of information for young children to understand, without losing their attention or overwhelming them with heavy details about the war. -- Bethany Davidson

This children's book details Corrie’s courage, forgiveness, and even remarkable joy as she is imprisoned for hiding and helping the Jewish people trapped in the Netherlands. As the timeline at the end of the book shares, “Corrie taught us to trust God in every situation and to find in Him the strength to forgive, even when it’s really hard.” I thought the book handled WWII age-appropriately for the young kids who will be reading the book. -- Ellen Finstad

As a parent, I want my children to be shaped and influenced by the steadfast lives of other Christians. The "Do Great Things for God" series by Laura Caputo-Wickham is a wonderful introduction to faithful women who courageously served the Lord in a variety of ways. These stories teach as they inspire, and your children will be blessed to learn about Betsey Stockton’s missionary dream and Corrie Ten Boom’s secret room. -- Melissa B Kruger (Women’s Ministry Coordinator, Uptown Church; author, The Envy of Eve)

Whether she’s retelling the extraordinary stories of Corrie ten Boom or Betsey Stockton, Laura Caputo-Wickham captures a big gospel for little hearts. The wonderful storytelling and charming illustrations make the mini-biographies in the "Do Great Things for God" series pitch-perfect for even the youngest readers. I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine did. -- Champ Thornton (Author of The Radical Book for Kids)

The writing is lively and accessible, and the story is elegantly told. Laura has dealt with difficult topics in an age appropriate way. All of us, and children especially, love heroes and heroines. There is here a sense of adventure but also of high spiritual and moral purpose. Using a single verse from the Bible to frame each story is a good way to help children remember the promises of the Word of God. I love the illustrations! -- Michael Nazir-Ali (Director, The Oxford Centre for Training, Research, Advocacy and Dialogue)

This series brings to life the forgotten, teaches us valuable lessons, and imprints on us early on that if God kept our spiritual ancestors, he will keep us too. -- K.A. Ellis (Director of the Edmiston Center for the Study of the Bible and Ethnicity)

Hebrews 11 is full of characters from the past who put their faith into action to encourage and inspire the current generation. This beautifully written and attractively produced series fulfils a similar function. Each book will inspire our children, warm their hearts and fire their imagination to encourage them to live wholeheartedly for Christ. -- Angus Macleay (Rector, St Nicholas Church, Sevenoaks)

A wonderful series, beautifully illustrated, introducing your children to godly women. -- Blair Linne (Spoken-word artist and author)

A famous story beautifully retold. -- Bob Hartman (Author, Rhyming Bible and The Lion Storytelling Bible)

Corrie Ten Boom is an amazing woman. This children's story tells us about the intention of her heart to help Jewish people, God's provision of a Bible during her time in the concentration camp, and her message, "that there's no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still." -- Amber Thiessen
