WaltMoline, ILAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Ditto on Grandma liked it, too!December 17, 2016WaltMoline, ILAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I got this for my grandson for his 11th birthday, but before giving it to him, I ended up reading the whole thing. It was only near the end that I remembered I had read the adult version a number of years ago--but forgotten so much. It was good the second time! A damaged edition was available for less, but it was certainly worth it to pay more for the "revised" edition, as it has an update. That was valuable to read!
This is an amazing man with a fantastic story. (written by "Mrs. Walt")
lindaStarkville, MSAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Grandmom liked it too.January 22, 2016lindaStarkville, MSAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book for my 10 year old granddaughter. She reads constantly. I look over every resource on the CBD site before I order an item and was pleased with what I read.
Before we wrapped it for Christmas, I sat and read part of it just to be sure it was what I expected. I got so caught up in the story that I was halfway through before I realized it. It is a wonderful book regardless of who you intend to vote for but even more so for Christians still considering choices. It's a wonderful book in non-election years as well.
fellow foot washer5 Stars Out Of 5Gifted Hans: The Ben Carson Story, Revised Kids' EditionApril 27, 2015fellow foot washerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I bought this for my 7 year old grandson, who loves to read historical biographies. I didn't see that it was recommended for older kids. I read it and found it very inspiring. In a few years, will share with my grandson. Meanwhile, I'm sharing it with high school senior (who dislikes reading) in hopes of motivating him to make most of opportunities presented. Keep you posted...
