Tuesday Titles to Share

Tuesday Titles are back for our Easter Co-op 2012!

Some of our greatest moments are made reading to our children.  Each week during our Easter Co-op, we will showcase a couple of Easter book titles that you can share with your families.  It's time to get busy making memories!

General Interest -

by Martha Zimmerman. Published by Bethany House Publishers.

The word "holiday" means "a special day set apart for a spiritual purpose," and most of the holidays originated to affirm our faith. Through them we can communicate what we believe. Holidays invite us to participate with God's people through the centuries in historic events that have affected all of time, including the present, and prepare us for the future! They "replay" decisive religious events, reminding us of God's marvelous works.

What a wonderful reason to celebrate and give praise to God! With thoughtful planning, holidays can provide time for families to love each other, have fun together, build family memories, and truly celebrate the traditional Christian holidays.

Family Read Aloud -

Amon's Adventure: A Family Story for Easter
by Arnold Ytreeide / Kregel Publications

With short, exciting chapters, reflections for family devotions, and advice for making Lent a meaningful experience, Amon’s Adventure will help families discover anew the spiritual power of the resurrection story.

 Thirteen-year-old Amon, struggles to divide his time between his friends and his duties to family and faith. But when his father, Jotham, is falsely accused of a terrible crime, Amon willingly sacrifices his childhood ways in order to save his father’s life. Along the way, he sees the jubilant crowds that gathered on Palm Sunday, outwits the Roman soldiers that planned to kill both his father and Jesus, hears the Messiah address the angry crowds, is present during the daring betrayal of Judas Iscariot, and witnesses the ultimate sacrifice made on Good Friday.  Highly Recommended!

Elementary Reading -

  1. We would love to have Amon's adventure! I find it such a shame the libraries don't provide most literature in our studies at our home, mostly because of their Christian base. My children ages 13, 10 and 6 LOVE read a louds! portiavigil@gmail.com. not sure how to enter the giveaway so I'll try just leaving a comment and my email.

  2. I agree with Chef Sharon. I love to use our library but unfortunately they don't have a lot of the Christian base books available. We have tried the interlibrary loan process but sometimes it takes months to get the book we need. Amon's Adventure sounds like a wonderful book and I would love to share it with our family.

    I do want to share that I have just started using your unit studies and I love them. I am sure we will be using them more often.

    I also love all the information you put on facebook. I look forward to reading it each day.

    I pray blessings upon your adventures as a company but also in your families
