I really liked the book, "Ten Boys Who Used Their Talents." It tells about ten famous men who used their talents to serve God like George Washinton Carver, C.S. Lewis, J.S. Bach, and more. I encourage you to read this book. Marilyn Fisher Maryland
An approachable book of biographies demonstrating positive values. Mar 29, 2009
"Ten Boys Who Used Their Talents" prompts kids to consider "what can [they] do for God?" by reading engaging 11-page, small-format profiles of famous men as boys. Each of these boyhood re-creations is followed up by a two-page spread with headings entitled "Fact File" a three-word summary of their major contribution and paragraph of biographical facts; "Keynote" describing how life events and talents led them to being influential; "Think" relates those concepts to a Biblical interpretation; and "Prayer" a short prayer of thanksgiving that drives the point home. This little book provides real-life examples of worthy role models, and a template for how to use talents in a very concrete way.
