We were extremely excited to review Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd’s Stone (Book 5) and Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion’s Roar (Book 6) from WorthyKids Books. You may have recall earlier this year the crew reviewed Book 3 and 4, the books were such a huge hit in our house that my son was eagerly excited to jump into the next two books in the 7 part series.
I was super thrilled that this time around my son grabbed the books off the table and ran into his room and started reading them without me. While I was little sad at the fact that he started without me this time around I was also really happy. One of the things I enjoy about this series is that they are clean literature and age appropriate for 6- 8 year olds.
In Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd’s Stone (Book 5) our favorite characters Peter and Mary whisked away Bethlehem where they met David. The Shepard Stone is based on the Bibles accounts of David and Goliath. Peter, Mary and David set off on adventure to bring food to his brothers in the battlefield. Along the way the children encounter obstacles and test their faith. This book is such a great way to teach about faith and courage. The book also open the door for discussions about bullies.
Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion’s Roar (Book 6) the children begin their adventures in Babylon and they meet Hannah and she introduces Mary and Peter to Daniel who has been appointed one the new governors of Babylon. The three young children uncover a plot to have Daniel overthrown and that’s when the adventure begins. In this books children will also learn about standing firm in their faith.
Along with having clean literature the books are well written and easy for young readers to follow. The illustrations are detailed and there are just enough in each chapter where the children can immerse themselves into the story without being overly distracted. The text of the books are a great size and the paper quality is strong. The paperback cover is thick and sturdy with nice glossy cover.
We really enjoy this series and this time around my son read one book independently and the second one we took turns reading it. My son really enjoys the characters and likes that the book mentions actual countries that we can find out more about. Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd’s Stone (Book 5) and Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion’s Roar (Book 6) 14 chapters long with 120 pages.
I highly recommend these books if you are looking for clean literature. I also recommend these for those chapter readers ages 6-8 years as independent reading. These would great as a family read along side religious study.
