My Review:

I really enjoyed this book. I know its for kids but it was so interesting that I recommend adults read this as well. It really made me want to read more about the different individuals that was mentioned throughout history. This book takes you from the time right after resurrection through World War II.  She also parallels each historical story with a Biblical one. She asks your kids questions to help them think about their own life. 

I really like how she set each chapter up. You can almost read a chapter a day like a devotional. That is how I would recommend you doing it with your child. It’s a great book and resource and I think it will be something that can open up some positive conversation between you and your kids. Definitely go and check it out.

This book is available where books are sold.
