Review & Giveaway - Xander Nash Book Series

Toay I want to share with you a series of books that I've been reading with my girls. It's the Xander Nash series by "Creation by Design". We were sent the first 3 books in the series & have read through them like crazy! Talia is loving reading a chapter a night or at bed time (and she always begs for one more chapter- now that we've finished the books, we're on to Charlotte's Web!)


Each book in the Xander Nash series is about a boy named Xander who goes back in time with his dog, Mitts, and witnesses (and participates in) a bible story. The first book is about creation, the 2nd is about Joseph (and there's always a bit of a lesson- the 2nd book addresses sibling rivalry), the 3rd is about Moses & Pharaoh, etc.

I thought these were great for Talia's age (5) and would be great for older kids who can read the book on their own, too. I think hearing the stories from this perspective helps them to learn & remember different parts of the story and helps them see it from a different perspective than they're used to.

You can find these Bible Adventure books (and other products) on the Creation by Design website.

And today you have the chance to win the first book in the series!
