Great Stories Apr 27, 2008
While these stories are meant for children ages six to twelve, I thoroughly enjoyed them. Each biography is written in two parts. The first part is a short biography of the person's life. The second part is made up of several short devotional stories taken from the subject's life. Included in each devotional story is Scripture and "Let's Talk About It" questions that help stimulate discussion with your kids. Like all the books this couple writes, Heroes in Black History keeps you engaged. You will not only be educated, you will be entertained...and so will the children in your life.
