Emily checked this book out at the church library Wednesday night.
She finished it this morning - Saturday.
All that reading and schoolwork and other family activities (interpret: cook, eat, clean up, shower, sleep, visit) -- wow.
That was a fast read!!
Em says she likes books with exciting adventures.
We found this Abby - Lost at Sea book on the shelf after Wednesday night prayer meeting.
It says, "An exciting, fast-paced read!"
Hmmmmm. Wonder if she'd like this one?
The back of the book tells about adventures filled with heart stopping danger, nasty villains...and then it says,
"Along the way you'll see that God can be trusted -- even in deep waters."
She decided between this series and another (Annie Henry).
I didn't choose for her.
Guiding her -- but letting her choose --helps foster the continued love of reading based on her individual interests, genre, styles.
But how thankful I am that there are quality series books for children/youth that weave in truths from God's Word.
This is what is written on the dedication page of the book. It's a scripture referred to throughout the story as Abby faces many challenges.
Emily loved, loved, loved this book.
Can't wait to check out the next one in this series - Abby - Quest for Treasure.
I'm soooo thankful that my girls love to read, and I'm heartened by their choices of literature.
