I love to read, and I am at my wits end trying to instill that same love for reading in Hannah. She just does not like to sit still long enough to read. But she does enjoy mystery, and I enjoy encouraging her faith to grow. So my first book review for Book Look Bloggers, (Harpercollins Christian Publishing) is a book I chose for her.
"Samantha Sanderson - At The Movies" by Robin Caroll.
(published by Zondervan)
Hannah loved this book, and gives it a 4 out of 5 stars. (I did try to get her to write this review, but she's on summer vacation, lol). In order to write this review, I also read this book, and I also give it 4 out of 5 stars. It was easy to read, which is good for young girls, but the story line was engaging and kept me (an adult) interested throughout. Plus the faith lessons were very good.
Samantha is a middle school student that is on the schools newspaper, her mother is a famous journalist, and her father is a police detective. This story follow Samantha as she reports on a local bombing story while learning God's truth about reporting, not jumping to conclusions, and relationships. It was a very good story.
So if you have a young girl that likes to read, and even those that don't like to read, I recommend you get them this book. The best part? It's the first book in a series, so there will be more for your child to look forward to reading in the future.
