    Marvelously and thoroughly illustrated by Alan Parry, this version of the famous allegory written in 1676 by John Bunyan was prepared to coincide with a TV series called Dangerous Journey, which aired in 1985. This book would make a great bed-time storybook as the rich images, coupled with the carefully selected text of the story, make for an experience to subtly teach a lesson while serving as a springboard for a young child's imagination. 126 pgs. ~ Tom

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.

    Beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas, many families set aside a few minutes a day to celebrate Advent and zero in on the true reason for the season. This wonderful story is designed to be used during Advent but really could just be read and enjoyed like a typical book. For each day of Advent, the book provides a short chapter of a story about a young boy whose family were shepherds during the time of Jesus' birth. Due to Jotham's poor attitude and a misunderstanding, Jotham is separated from his family and must travel across Israel in search of them. He faces many dangers but also meets many new friends. Ultimately, Jotham is reunited with his family on Christmas Eve, just in time for them all to witness the birth of Christ together. It's a charming tale, full of adventure and lessons, and is ideal for the whole family to read aloud. Each chapter probably takes about 10-15 minutes to read and usually concludes with a scripture verse that ties in with the story as well as a small, 1-2 paragraph devotional. Whether you use it to celebrate Advent in the traditional way or just read it for fun, this story is entertaining and a great reminder of what Christmas is really all about.

    Lois Lenski brings us the story of Mary Jemison, affectionately referred to as Molly. Molly spent the first 12 years of her life with her white family in Marsh Creek Hollow, New York. When the story begins, it is the night before Pa plans on sowing the corn. The family is seated around the dinner table when a neighbor comes to warn them of the danger of the Indians. He encourages the Jemison family to flee and avoid attack. Stubborn Pa does not listen, saying he intends to stay where he is and arise the next day to plant his corn. However, when the next day comes, Molly and her family are taken from their home and quickly led away by the Seneca. A short time into the journey, Molly is forced to go on while her family is left behind. Her mother tells her to never forget her family name, the language that they speak, and her faith. Molly does not find out that her family was killed until 2 years later. Her first year among the Seneca proves to be difficult and heartbreaking. She is renamed, "Corn Tassel" because of her beautiful yellow hair. Every day she mourns the loss of her family and goes into the woods to cry. There is no hope to escape, for she can't navigate the treacherous way home by herself. She learns the Indian ways and comes to love the Seneca. After two years, she is given the difficult decision to be sold to an Englishman and live with her kind again. She is torn because she has learned so much and has gained so much strength because of the Indians and she now loves them as family.

    This book is a children's version of the original Hinds' Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard. Carefully adapted for a younger audience, it retains the rich vocabulary and inspiring storyline of the original allegory. If you are not familiar with this story, it is about a young girl named Much-Afraid. Although Much-Afraid is a servant of the Shepherd, she still worries a lot, and she is surrounded by her Fearing relatives, Dismal, Spiteful, Craven Fear, and Self-Pity. When she tells the Shepherd she wants to leave the Valley and go to the High Places, she learns that He has been waiting for her to say those very words. He tells her that the journey will be difficult and dangerous, but He will provide her with two companions for help. Also, although she won't be able to see Him, He reminds her that she only needs to call and he will answer. Much-Afraid begins the long journey, but she faces many doubts and hesitations along the way. Will she ever reach the High Places, or will she turn away from the path the Shepherd has put before her? The story is fully illustrated with gorgeous, colorful pictures. Every few pages, at natural breaking points in the story, there is a page with discussion questions, relevant Bible verses, and a short prayer to pray with kids. A wonderful story to read aloud and discuss with children. 116 pgs. - Melissa

    "Journey to Arrethrae, where these knights of noble heart live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. These knights are mighty, for they serve a mighty King. They are… the Knights of Arrethrae!" Written by Chuck Black, author of the Kingdom series, this series, although featuring an order of faithful knights and full medieval trappings, is a bit different. While the Kingdom series is based on the events of the Bible, this series is allegorical in the sense that the knights and their enemies reflect Christians today and the temptations of this world. Although the various knights make appearances throughout the series, each title follows one particular knight as they face a powerful adversary. In Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione, Sir Kendrick investigates a secretive new order of knights and faces off against Lord Ra, who encourages young people to leave home and never return (symbolizing the danger of rebellion). Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue pits the valiant lady knight against Lord Malco, distributor of the dangerously addictive "esca" crystals (representing various forms of escapism). The storylines are not only enlightening but exciting and would make perfect family read-alouds. If you enjoy them as a family you'll especially appreciate the discussion questions by chapter (answers are included). Pb, just under 200 pgs each. – Jess
