The Terrestria Chronicles

Once in a while you see a really generous gesture made by one of your kids, that makes you proud and happy with their growth of character.  This happened in our home this week when Booklover bought her big sister, Alizona, books 4-8 of the Terrestria Chronicles, for no reason other than because she knew Alizona would love to have them! 





The girls have been eating these up. We currently are using book one, The Sword, The Ring, and The Parchment in our family devotions, and it is great!
(You can even get a study guide for discussion!) I have not read any of the series myself yet, but I am going to soon because I told the author, Ed Dunlop, that I would write a review for Amazon and Christianbook, both of which have just accepted these books for distribution.


Here's the really neat part.  You can get a free sample of Ed Dunlop's writing by going to his website, www.dunlopministries.com. Towards the bottom of the page there is a download link for another of his books with more tales of Terrestria,  The Quest for Thunder Mountain. While the advantages of ebooks over hard copy can be debated, this is a great opportunity to see what the excitement is all about.  And PS.  While you're there, check out Dunlop's other books for kids!

    I've been eyeing these, I'm glad you are posting about them. And useful for family devotions, that is good, I've been looking for something for that too.


    Reminds me that we have a post to write and book to review too...


    Landel Bilbrey sent me his (her?) book called Sentinel - City of Destiny to review, so far we are on Chapter 4 reading aloud. www.bridgemaker-books.com

    I think you are doing a great job with your children. They seem so kind and generous. My children will do that for each other sometimes also and it always makes me smile! I believe my daughter has read this series. I will have to ask her because this sounds like books she would really enjoy. Have a great week.

  5. The Terrestria Chronicles look like they would be something my son would like...I'll have to check those out.

    I usually get books from my library, but I just checked and they don't have them.
