Who is going to tell the Chinese people about God? Sep 30, 2009
This brief biography of Hudson Taylor is tailor-made for young readers. It provides a great biographical sketch of a pioneering missionary to China for 4-7 year olds. The publisher states that the "read to me" age-range is 4-5 with a "read by myself" age range of 6-7.
Colorful illustrations will capture the attention of younger listeners while early readers will appreciate the longer storyline. There is one paragraph per 2-page spread and a bold line on the opposite page highlighting a certain aspect of the story. Children will connect with the person in the biography as it begins with Hudson as a child and gives an overview of his life's work in China.
The only thing missing from this book which would have been helpful is a brief bibliography and time-frame or dates so that it could easily be incorporated into a lesson plan without going to outside sources for additional information such as Hudson Taylor lived from May 21, 1832 - June 3, 1905. Overall, it is a delightful sketch for young children.
