The Redcoats are Coming

The Redcoats are Coming is an Adventures in Odyssey Imagination Station Book by Marianne Hering and Nancy Sanders. This is a cute, short book that tells young children about The American Revolution. This book focuses on Patrick and Beth in 1775 as they try to let the community know that The Redcoats are coming. When focusing on this point in history, Patrick and Beth meet Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Samuel Adams.


This book offers children a great way to learn about history in an exciting way. It’s much better to read a story filled with adventure than to read something in a history book that may not seem the most exciting for elementary school aged children.

This One Year My Princess Devotions

The One Year My Princess Devotions by Karen Whiting is a great devotional book for young girls, specifically preschool aged. They are short devotions with large writing and is very colorful, which is perfect for a younger child. Another thing that made them especially good for young girls is that they are written in a way that is very understandable and even relatable to young girls. The devotional is divided into sections including royal words, a princess thought, a prayer for the King, and princess in action. These include a Bible verse with an explanation of that verse. I think this is especially important for young children to learn Bible Verses at a young age, and this devotional does a great job of introducing young girls to Bible Verses.  This adorable book is a must-read for young girls!
