- Review by Shannon
Overall this Get to Know series is wonderful and one that I know you and your child will enjoy and read many times. Even my 13-year-old said it was good and said she wished she had this book when she was doing her report on Mary for her Religion class at school. So while it is geared towards 6-10 year olds I think older kids could use it if they go to a christian school. This book and series would be a wonderful gift for first communion, a teacher or RE teacher. (Posted on 7/2/2014)

Overall, I honestly love these books! I have never seen such an amazing biography for kids based on the Bible. I am honestly blown away at how easy these are to read, how interesting the pictures are, and how educational they are for the young readers. My kids asked so many questions during these books, it was a wonderful time before bed and they learned instead of just pictured the story. I highly recommend these books to anyone who has school aged children; they are just perfect for them, and on top of that perfect for the beginning reader.
