My children LOVE to be read to. Even my oldest still enjoys sitting around and listening to Daddy read. And my husband has got to be the best “reader outlouder” there is. (yes, I just made that word up!) He incorporates voices and personalities into every page he reads and often-times stops to discuss a certain point or allegory that is being made (which makes for great family discussions)!
One of the series that we’ve been reading through is the Terrestria Chronicles by Ed Dunlop.
Travel back to the days of noble knights and powerful warlords… daring quests and deadly dragons… the days of honor and valor and chivalry.
In today’s world it’s hard to find good, wholesome reading material for your family—well-written books that cause your children to grow in the Lord… books that challenge them to serve Him with all their hearts.
The Terrestria Chronicles allegory series was written with a three-fold purpose: to honor Jesus Christ as King, to challenge young readers to love and serve Him, and to teach them to guard their hearts for Him. The focus of the series is always on the King.
Fast-paced action… powerful imagery… heart-pounding adventure… These life-changing books are captivating and once you start reading, you’ll find them hard to put down. This adventure series has a particularly strong appeal to today’s young people: it’s a series with knights and castles, dragons and princesses… but these are books in which every page points to truths of the Christian walk. Biblical doctrines and character principles are taught in such a compelling, fascinating way that they will stay with the reader for a lifetime.
Written for ages ten and up, the Terrestria series is ideal for family devotions, classroom use, or individual enjoyment. So grab your sword and take your family on a quest to Terrestria! Your heart will be challenged to serve the King of kings.
We love this series and everything that Ed Dunlop has written. But more importantly we love the joy WE get when we take the time to read with our children and seeing the joy on their faces!
