Get to Know Paul by Nancy I. Sanders {book review}


Get to Know Paul is one of the titles in the A Biography For Kids series by Nancy Sanders. This book gives readers a historical look into the life of Paul that’s quite easy to understand. If reading through this biography series, I would recommend enjoying this one after going through the life of Jesus. Though do note that each of the biographies in the series stands perfectly well on its own. Learning about the apostle Paul is quite exciting as we can see how big of an impact he made in teaching the gospel to the first-century world and how that seed carried on throughout the church to this very day! Children will come to learn how historical findings shed light on truth of the existence that the missionary adventures and letters Paul wrote were actually real and not fiction!
The book is 120 pages long and full of 4-color maps and numerous photos excellent for visual learners. In the front of the book, there’s a key that informs readers and teachers to get to know how to use this book. There are icons such as a sandal which gives information about a Bible Hero, an eye icon for an eyewitness account of someone that saw what happened and tells about it, a word bank that introduces biblical words and definition perhaps not known to a child before, and a clay jar which tells fun facts. A personal favorite of mine is the time line near the back of the book which can tie well into other history studies. The visual appeal is quite high and the book is written in a way children can understand easily.This is an excellent biography and would be a great book to use for book reports, casual reading, or character studies as well as for home, church, or school use. Children will learn all about Paul and get a good look at his many missionary journeys, the places he lived, and so many more things. I’m excited to go through the Life of Paul with both of my children! These books are great for all but well suited for the five to ten year old range.
