Get to Know Mary, a book review

 

Most of us are familiar with Mary, the mother of baby Jesus, but we do not know how she lived or why she became the chosen one.  In “Get to Know Mary” we follow Mary’s life journey. We learn about who she was and follow major events in her life;  such as her engagement/marriage to Joseph, the birth of her first born son, her trip to Nazareth, and the home in which she made for her family.  “Get to Know Mary” is a fourth in the Get to know Children series written by Nancy I. Sanders.  This biography includes bright images and fun to know facts that will entertain your child’s mind.  There is also a timeline included in the back of the book.  This series makes for a great resource when learning about the great people of the Bible.  Very easy read and great for all ages.

Get to know King David

Get to know King David is a third in the Get to know Children series written by Nancy I. Sanders.  King David lived a life as a shepherd and a king, read about who he was and his stories in this biography.  Like the other books in this series you will find  bright colored images, maps, and fun facts about King David and the time that he lived in.   Your child will get a glimpse into David’s life and see how an imperfect man was used by God to do great things.

This is a great series and a must have in the home library.   My 5 year old son enjoys listening to the stories enclosed in the books and my 10 year old daughter enjoys reading the stories herself.  Perfect learning tools for children of all ages.  Can not wait to read the last of the series!

Get to Know Apostle Paul

_225_350_Book.1267.cover

I have another book review for you today…I recently posted a review on the Get to Know series by Nancy I Sanders.  I just completed a second book in that series, titled Get to Know Apostle Paul.  This book follows the same easy to read pattern as Get to Know Jesus and includes many vibrant colored pages including images, timelines, and maps.  Get to Know Apostle Paul is filled with tidbits of information sectioned in categories that include Bible Hero, Eyewitness Account, Did You know, and Word Bank.

Learn about the path of Apostle Paul from the very beginning when he was known as a young boy names Saul through a time when he was imprisoned in Rome.  Readers will be intrigued with maps that lead us to each missionary journey and images of places that he visited as they are today.  This is a great informational book and a neat way to introduce the life of Apostle Paul to children.
