Sugar Creek Gang Mar 18, 2007
These books are great! Good clean fun and adventure. I don't have to worry about what my kids might be picking up when reading these!
My kid loves these books Jan 11, 2007
I purchased this set of books for my 8 year old son for Christmas. It's January 11th and he has read all by one of the books already. We read these books with our son, him reading, everynight and he reads on his own every chance he gets. The print is a great font, the wording is perfect for kids, and the stories keep children's interest peaked. We also have the #1 - 6 set and plan on purchasing the other sets in the future. I can't find any wrong with these books and can't imagine anyone else finding any problems either.

Great books to direct my kid's and my own conversations/thoughts toward what is right.
Discipleship 101 for kids... and a whole LOT more!! Mar 24, 2002
I am a mom to 5 boys and our family has been hooked on the adventures of the Sugar Creek Gang for a few years now! We originally discovered the stories through an awesome set of cassette tapes. The books were dramatized for an radio series by Paul Ramseyer of Northwestern College Radio in Minnesota and our family is now a part of the ministry, helping to produce the audio series for families to enjoy at home! Do you want your children to learn gentle lessons of courage, faith & friendship on THEIR level? Do you want to see real growth in their character? The stories are fun adventures with the truth of God's plans woven skillfully throughout. See the world through the eyes of Bill Collins, a freckle-faced, firey-tempered red head. You'll enjoy Bill's antics and the barefoot fun of all the boys in the "gang"! (As a side note, I do recommend the books be read in order. They tell an ongoing story from beginning to end.) From the back of the tapes: "Step back in time... to one-room schoolhouses, hot summer days of fishing, fun and barefoot boys. Sugar Creek Gang stories engage the imagination and draw a child's heart into a living relationship with God! Hymns, scripture verses, nature lore, poetry; sensitivity toward the disabled, the oppressed... and the courage and confidence to share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ." --- Just the right recipe for training up a child!
