There is nothing better than when your young student begins really reading on their own. The folks at WorthyKids/Ideals gave my daughter an adventure she loved so much she couldn’t wait to review book 2 of The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls. Of course, I would expect nothing less from the company that brings great stories like Veggie Tales and the Berenstain Bears to life.
Whoever said you could not judge a book by the cover was looking at a boring book. From the first glance these books captured my kid’s interest. My 11 year old daughter read through this story on a few sittings. Once she got a few chapters in the the story had her hooked. She got up every morning and met me in the office to tell me all about what she had read the night before.
From Bella (11) about The Secret of the Hidden Scrols: The Begining:
I like adventure books so I liked how all of the animals scared the kids at first. They discovered that the animals were not going to hurt them. They even got to ride on an elephant. My favorite part was when the animals were created.
The story began when Mary and Peter’s parents headed out of town, leaving them with their “crazy” uncle Solomon. He told fantastic stories about a set of mysterious scrolls. It sounded crazy until one night the kids were awakened by a strange noise. When the kids looked into a glowing pot they found two scrolls. When they broke the seal the real adventure began. The kids learned the story of Genesis as they roamed the strange land they were transported to. They had to find out the meaning of three mysterious words on the scroll to find their way home. They discover so much more. They learn about the character of God his plan for mankind. The key to everything is: God Created Everything.
She is almost through The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: Race to the Ark, and we hope there are more to come. I love having new readers in the house and it is nice to find a book that captures their imagination with a good adventure.
A younger reader could easily handle these books and I think I am going to have my reviewer read these aloud to her younger brother and sisters. Since she really liked the books I think she would like to share the adventure and reading out loud is a skill that everyone should practice often.
