Reviews - What do customers think about Hero Tales: A Family Treasury of True Stories from the Lives of Christian Heroes?
Good Background information. Aug 13, 2006
This is a good book to give an overview of several different key influencial individuals to the Christian Faith. It is written from a Protestant perspective regarding Martin Luther, William Tyndale, etc. It is probably best suited for kids age 7+ on to adults who want a quick, simplified summary of these individuals. For each person there is a summary, and then two-three 1-2 page stories regarding their lives. It also includes comprehension questions for each story which seem to help my girls solidify what they learned. Though many stories are quite interesting, some of the stories can be a bit dull to a child waiting for an exciting story. So, in order to keep my children's interest I often read it to them with animation, but I still see it as a very valuable book for us to have.
