This asked when reading a story about Papau New Guinea.
It made me HOOT.
Oh this lad.... he makes me laugh.
But we have SO enjoyed reading the stories of real folks, serving God, in a variety of contexts. Seed Sowers has been SO good for us to do for the TOS review crew. :)
Product: Seed Sowers: Gospel-Planting Adventures
Price: In softcover for normally $13.95, currently $12.50, it can also be purchased in hardcover for$30.95-hardcover or in kindle for $$3.99
Age Range: any, as long as you are willing to answer questions. Sometimes missionaries die, and sometimes the people they work with can be a bit frightening to young children. It is geared for sixth grade independent reading.
I received the e-book version of it (on Kindle for $3.99). Seed Sowers is a collection of short stories about missionaries on the field, doing translation work with various people groups. 21 chapters, 165 pages. It is written by Gwen Toliver.
We SO enjoyed this book. Even with the hard questions the lad would sometimes ask. "Mom, why would they want to hurt that man?" "Mom, why didn't God save that person when he helped the other one?" "Mom, why did people have to go so far from home?" "Mom, why...."
Sometimes you just don't know the answers.
We were delighted at times with how God rescued people, the big cat roaming around the house in one of the stories made quite the impression on the lad.
At times we'd head on over to our world map and look for the places people were ministering in.
We will be reading this book again, probably next summer while camping so dad can read it with us. :)
The only thing I regret in this review: not having an actual book that I can pass around to my friends and family so they can easily read it too.
