We enjoy reading Christian biographies in the morning - especially missionary biographies. A month or so ago, we finished the book, "The Adventure of Missionary Heroism" and last week we finished "Cowboy Boots in Darkest Africa." Both are fantastic books with true heroes for our children to learn about.
However, I realized the stories were really staying with my children when, a few days ago, my 6-year old came running through the kitchen chasing my 3-year old. As they raced through, the 6-year old said, "I'm a cannibal and I'm chasing my supper!"
Monday, we started reading "In His Steps." I'm thinking my kids are ready for something a tad less violent. :)
