Monstrous Maud: Big Fright By A.B. Saddlewick {Book Review}


Monstrous Maud: Big Fright is geared toward middle-grade readers that follows many more books in this fun literary series. Monstrous Maud is an interesting character who walks to the beat of her own drum. Advertised as a great alternative to princess-themed books, I am pleased to introduce the series to my oldest whom tends to prefer the oddball, mysterious, quirky types of characters and stories to the sparkly fashion shopping boy crazy themed titles out there often promoted for girls around her age.

Wow!: The Good News in Four Words {Book Review}


Wow! The Good News in Four Words by Dandi Daley Mackall is a great hard-cover picture book! It is geared toward boys and girls ages 3-6 years old. It presents in a simplified way on how to come to know Jesus as their own personal Savior and Lord.

The main four words used are Wow, Uh-oh, Yes, and Ahh. Each word is broken down through the book. The word “Wow” for example demonstrates and explains the creation of the world, the word Uh-Oh shows how sin entered the world and how we became separated from God, you get the picture. The message is powerful and it’s the most simplified version of the gospel I’ve seen for children in this age range.
