This past Christmas, my son received a special gift in the mail from his aunt, uncle(my youngest brother)and cousins in Wisconsin. Upon opening his package, he discovered the first 3 books of what is known as the Kingdom Series. The author of this series is Chuck Black, and I can say that I have enjoyed these books as much as my son has. These books are actually an allegory of the Bible and take place in a medeival setting, chock full of knights, villians and sword fights. In the back of each book are discussion questions that you can use to help your child think and understand how certain characters and events in the book represent people and happenings in the Bible.
My son was a very reluctant reader until the beginning of last year when he really gained an interest in the Hardy Boys. I was and am glad for that, but I really wanted to find something else with a little more depth that would interest him. These books were the ticket! If you have a book resistant kid in your household, you might want to try these out. They are also available as audio dramatized books too.
