"The Knight and the Firefly" & "The Pirate and the Firefly" - Christian Children's Books #Review and #Giveaway (2 Winners)! #BackToSchool (U.S.) Ends 8/30


About "The Knight and the Firefly: A Boy, a Bug and a Lesson in Bravery"
Brave knight Oliver fights fearlessly during the day, defending his backyard, but once the sun goes down, he is wide awake and afraid of all of the things hiding in the dark! Oliver finds some helpful advice from a clever firefly named Phineas, who shows him that the true light comes from God's Word! Little kids will love reading along and learning from this story based on Psalm 91:1-2. Includes the "Parent Connection" in the back that features discussion questions, activities for parents to do with kids, and more!



About “The Pirate and the Firefly: A Boy, a Bug and a Lesson in Wisdom”
Oliver loves pretending to be a pirate, but learns that blindly following others doesn't leave him with a good feeling inside.

In this Scripture adventure, kids join Oliver as he rights the wrongs done by his so-called Pirate friends. Through it all, Captain Oliver learns that following God's way is the true way to wisdom!

The second book in the “Nightlight Chronicle" series brings entire sections of Scripture to life via imaginative, fantastical stories that use a passage from Psalms to help children understand and apply biblical truths to their lives. Each book in the series will depict Oliver wearing a different costume as he imagines and adventures his way through God's Word with the help of Phineas, the firefly. Based on Scripture from Psalm 1, "The Pirate and the Firefly" aims to address the felt needs of children ages 4 to 8 including courage, confidence, friendship and more with biblical truths about God.

Amanda Jenkins is passionate about communicating biblical truths to kids in a way they can understand and connect with. Amanda lives just outside of Chicago with her husband, Dallas, and their four young children. She is also the daughter-in-law of Jerry B. Jenkins, author of the best- selling Left Behind series.

Tara Mcclary reeves is the author of Don’t Tell That to Beasley and one of her joys and privileges as a parent is daily pointing her two teens and toddler to Jesus. She is thrilled Amanda Jenkins agreed to join her on The Knight and the Firefly and is prayerful their collaboration will equip parents and children to focus and depend upon the Lord. Tara and her husband, Lee, live in Davidson, North Carolina with their 13-year- old twins, Caroline and Daniel, and 14-month-old Harrison. She blogs at www.rememberyourraisin.com.


My Review on both books:
In "The Knight and the Firefly," Oliver learns to trust in God, and that God will protect him always. In "The Pirate and the Firefly," Oliver learns that making bad choice and hanging out with friends who make you do bad things isn't right. He also learns that God gave us the bible to guide us and keep us out of trouble. My seven and a half year old son and I read these books together and it opened up a bunch of questions he had about God and about his own choices. It was awesome. I haven't had a conversation like that with my son ever, until we read these books together. It was great to hear what my son had to say and about how he felt about things. Us adults can all learn things from the innocence of young children.

With our children going back to school, so comes early bedtimes and lots of reading books before bed and reading books for school too! We keep reading to our children before bed all year long. As they look forward to reading to us out loud and sharing new stories with us and their siblings too!
