You may recall a few months back when we reviewed books three and four of The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series from WorthyKids Books. Well – we loved them then and we love books five and six as well. If you haven’t heard of them before – let’s get to the introduction. The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd’s Stone (Book 5) and The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion’s Road (Book 6).
The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls is a bible-based adventure series of paperback books. Peter, Mary and their dog embark on a different adventure in every book that takes them through a bible story that kids will love. They are just hanging out living their life at their Great-Uncle Solomon’s house. When they hear the lions roar – they are off on the adventure.
Throughout the story, they have to solve a secret scroll message. In The Shepherd’s Stone – they meet David while he is tending his sheep. They follow along with him as he brings food to his brothers in Bethlehem and then as he fights Goliath. Each step of their journey presents them with the opportunity to see God at work in the life of David.
We loved the way Hank and Mary got to hear how much David trusted in God. As they journey through Death Valley, we read about how Satan tries to deter us but how God is there to keep us safe. A powerful message.
The adventure is very captivating and the kids always ask for more than one chapter a night. I love having these amazing stories that I can read with the kids or they can read to themselves. Finding quality stories with good values that I want my kids to read can be challenging but The Secret of the Scrolls totally nails it. The kids and I love the stories.
At the end of the book – there will be a few different bible verses you can read that point to different events in the story. In The Lion’s Roar – some of these verses point to the story of David and the Israelites being captured, Daniel in the lion’s den and more. While the story itself is an adventure – it brings into perspective for the kids that the story is really a bible adventure. The story is told in such a fun way that keeps us wanting to read more – and waiting for the newest book to release. Keep your eyes peeled – book 7 all be here soon.
Now that you know what these books are all about and how much our family loves reading them – I have a surprise. You can enter to win the entire set – books 1 through 7 AND they are choosing three winners. Awesome, right?! Make sure you enter because you WANT these books in your kids’ hands.
