2015 Summer Reading Suggestions ~ The Quest For Truth


2015 Summer Reading Suggestions - Week 4
The Quest for Truth series

One of my favorite series of books is written for kids about 8+. Family oriented, faith based and action packed it's guaranteed to keep boys (and girls) on the edge of their seat. Older kids and parents will get the message buried beneath the story and will have fun with the symbolism and references to faith & Biblical lessons scattered throughout the story. I STILL think this series would make a GREAT movie series!

The Quest for Truth is a cross between Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter (kinda), Avatar (without the animalismm, ritualism & preaching about saving the planet) & Indiana Jones..... it moves fast, is as deep as you want to make it, is full of puzzles, symbols and scriptural lessons without delving into the Bible. Make sense? No - you need to read the book to see what I mean!

  1. Hello Tina! Having a Summer reading program/agenda for your kids is excellent. It gives them somewhere else to focus, a place that doesn't involve a big monitor/TV screen :)
