Looking for something new for your 7 -10 year old to read?  Beverly Lewis, author of some great fiction based on the Amish lifestyle, has a great little series out called the Cul-De-Sac kids.  These books are all around 80 pages in length and are about the adventures of 9 children who live on a cul-de-sac called Blossom Hill Lane. 

      There are over 20 books in the series.  Each one tells a cute story while teaching a little about friendship, living a life for God even as a child, caring for others, or similar relevant topics.  My oldest daughter learned and still remembers all the fruits of the Spirit by reading one of these books.

       I like how all the children have quite different personalities.  I also appreciate how the stories show kids who are looking to please God with their lives.  Of course they are not perfect, yet they care to do the right thing.  I love that my girls can enjoy the stories, and be shown examples of kids living their lives for God at the same time.

Beverly Lewis’ Cul-De-Sac Kids books are available from Bethany House Publishers.

    Sounds like a series to keep an eye out for. Reading that develops Godly character in our children is so important!

    This age group seems to be when children learn to love reading.
