NKJV Adventure Bible, Hardcover
By Zondervan

Ready for adventure? Embark on a fun, exciting journey through God’s Word with the full-color NKJV Adventure Bible. Along the way you’ll meet all types of 746265people, see all sorts of places, and learn all kinds of things about the Bible.

Features include:

  • “Life in Bible Times – Articles and illustrations describe what life was like in ancient days
  • “People in Bible Times” – Offers close-up looks at amazing people of the Bible
  • “Did You Know?” – Provides interesting facts that help you better understand God’s Word

This Bible has the same features you love in the NIV and NIrV versions. The New King James Version is available for those who prefer something other than the NIV and NIrV. It still has the beautiful artwork, and colorful maps. Features the fun jungle safari theme that we are all familiar with and is my all time favorite Bible. I recommend it to all my friends with kids ages 6-12.

The variety of covers makes this easy to pick out one that fits your child’s personality whether girl or boy.  You can click the title above to find out how you can purchase this product in the hardcover or see what other bindings are available.

Andi Under Pressure
By Amanda Flower / Zondervan
Twelve-year-old Andi Boggs and her friend Colin Carter attend a prestigious science camp at the local university. But Discovery Camp is plagued by pranks—and not all of them are in good fun. When one prank goes too far, Andi and Colin must unravel the secrets behind the chemistry department and a janitor’s dark past before danger closes the camp for good.

If your child likes a good mystery this is a good book. It’s a fun and easy read where you can try to put together the clues with Andi and her friend Colin. This is book 2 in the Andi Boggs novels but you don’t have to read the first book in order to read this one. Each book has a different mystery or “case” to solve. This will be one I put on my book gift guide.

How to Survive Middle School and Monster Bots – eBook
By Ron Bates / Zonderkidz
Howard can’t resist using his scientific genius to complete in his school’s prestigious robotics fair—although he has his work cut out for him if he’s going to show up tech-genius “G-Force” Forrester. Unfortunately, his mechanical experiment gets away from him—literally!

I found this book to be funny and fun. We follow the adventures of Howard Boward as he learns how to survive middle school and a mishap that he “accidentally” creates a monster bot. The author has a comedic way of writing that keeps your attention and makes you want to read more. I believe both boys and girls will enjoy Howards antics and what he goes through in this series. This is the second book in the series but you do not have to read the first to enjoy this one.  Again, this will be another recommendation for my Christmas gift guide.

Our Presidents Rock!
By Juliette Turner & Brian Oesch(Illustrator) / ZonderKidz 730951

This is such a fun book especially if you love history. There are information on the Presidents in there that you may have never known. For example did you know that John Adams and Thomas Jefferson are the only two Presidents that signed the Declaration of Independence? Or that Calvin Coolidge’s 16 year old son, whom died while President Coolidge served as President, is buried in the South Lawn of the Whitehouse?  These facts and more are found inside this book.  I love history and to have this book in hand is a plus for me. If you homeschool I think it would be a great addition but even if you don’t if you enjoy history I still recommend this book because its good to know more about the men who have held and currently hold the office of President.


You can order a copy of these books by clicking on the names of each one.
