I was first introduced to these children’s books by Patricia St. John books a few years ago when I was looking for some good reading material for our oldest daughter. They came highly recommended on a few home schooling resource pages, and she absolutely devoured them. This year they are required reading for our My Father’s World curriculum, and I am reading them aloud to the kids during lunch each day.
Born in England in 1914, Patricia St. John went on to be a nurse, missionary, and relief worker. She captured many of her experiences in a fictional stories for children.
I can’t say enough good things about these books. The writing is compelling and really captures the attention of all of my kids (ages 9- 2). More importantly, throughout the stories, children come to know the Lord and grow in him, and I love that my kids get to learn how this happens in a life. They all include wonderful cultural and character lessons, and scripture.
