The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Beginning
A mysterious scroll transports a brother and sister back to the time of God's creation of the world in this chapter book for emerging readers.
The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series follows siblings Peter and Mary and their dog, Hank, as they discover ancient scrolls that transport them back to key moments in biblical history.
In the first adventure in the series, Peter and Mary find themselves witnesses to the creation of the world just as God is speaking it into existence. Can they unlock the mystery of the scrolls before they get trapped in history forever? Children will discover the answer as the two characters ride rhinos, meet the angel Michael, and talk to a certain snake in the Garden of Eden. Riveting text and engaging illustrations bring this beloved Bible story to riotous life. Ages 6-9.
My thoughts: What a fun start to a great series for kids! My daughter and I enjoyed reading this one together, since it is a great way to introduce your kids to the story of the creation. We have talked some about it, but this book helped it come alive for my daughter, since it is told in an engaging way. It sparked some great conversations about what happened during the creation of the world and what happened after it. We enjoyed this book immensely and look forward to the next one!
I received this book from Worthy in exchange for my honest opinion.
