Summer Reading with Zonderkidz

(Disclosure: I received these books in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions shared are my own.)

Summer time is a time for fun, outside play, beach, and sleeping in.  But summer time should also have a little bit of reading in it too.  Kids need to expand their brains and they can do that by reading.  Older kids would love to read the chapter book Getting to Know: Apostle Paul.  This book talks about the life of Paul and everything that he did in his life.  My oldest son read this and was amazed with all the knowledge that he was getting by reading this book.  He then found Paul in the bible and was comparing what he read to what the Bible said.  He loved it.  Now my 7 year old is reading it too.

About Apostle Paul-- part of the Get to Know series-- is a biography written especially for 6-10 years old looking for accurate, historical information about Biblical characters.  With photographs and other primary sources to enrich content, young readers are sure to find out everything they need to know about Paul, his work spreading the Word, and his place in history.

Jonah and the Great Big Fish is a great book for younger kids.  It has a rhyming storyline about Jonah.  Jonah is a story that most children who go to Sunday School know.  This is a cute book with cute pictures to get the attention of younger children.  This book is simple enough for my 5 year old to read on his own.  He loves reading and always gets happy after he finishes a book on his own.  And I'm glad that he is reading books of value and Christian theme.

About Jonah and the Great Big Fish:
"God told Jonah to obey, said, 'Go to Nineveh this day.' But, stubborn Jonah fled instead.  Didn't do just what God said."  Jonah's disobedience landed him inside a big fish!  And there he had the time to think and pray.  Children will feel the waves and hear the splash as Jonah sinks 'down and down and down' into the belly of the fish.  This story serves as an excellent reminder of how important it is to listen to God.

Turn off the television and pick up a book!
