As regular readers know, a large, important part of our homeschool is reading aloud fabulous books. We’re on track to have read aloud nearly 100 books by the end of this year. (Audio books are a large part of our homeschooling when we’re driving in the car, which we do. . .ALOT!) Recently, we added two more fun, educational books to our completed read alouds: The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd’s Stone (Book 5) & Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion’s Roar (Book 6). These books are published by WorthyKids Books.
About the Hidden Scrolls Series
Mary and Peter, 10 and 9 year old siblings, along with their dog, Hank, are spending a month with their great Uncle Solomon while their parents are out of town. Great Uncle Solomon was an archaeologist, and his house is full of treasures, including the scrolls, which hold secrets and let the chosen travel through time. A few days into their visit, Mary and Peter take their first journey back in time.
This series includes six books, all of which we’ve had the pleasure of reviewing:
Book Seven will be released shortly.
About The Shepherd’s Stone
In The Shepherd’s Stone, Peter and Mary travel to Bethlehem. They meet a shepherd named David, get to visit his family, and then go with him to deliver food to his brothers on the battlefield. Of course, once David’s there, he hears Goliath’s challenge and agrees to fight against him. Meanwhile, Peter and Mary are on a tight schedule of only four days to solve the secret of the scroll or they’ll have to stay in Bethlehem forever!
About The Lion’s Roar
In The Lion’s Roar, Peter and Mary travel to Babylon and are intimidated by the High Priest almost from the time they arrive. The High Priest is determined to find them doing something wrong so he can throw them in prison, but his attention is diverted from that goal by his desire to punish Daniel. He does capture Daniel and throws him in the lions’ den, but miraculously (as we all know), he survives, unscathed. Then Peter and Mary are thrown into the lions’ den. Can they, too, survive?
How We Used These Books
We read aloud both books, and even though my girls are slightly out of the age range of 6 to 9, they both still enjoyed the stories. I continue to appreciate that these stories have many pictures and teach Bible stories in a way that really brings them to life for children.
I can’t wait to see where Peter and Mary will go next!
