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!
