As they followed the instructions of Jesus they were met with opposition from the devil, i.e. the storm and the raging sea. Opposition could be expected since they were going about the business of plundering strongholds of the enemy. [Support our Advertisers!]

My first thought was the Chronicles of Narnia.


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

You might look up the Encyclopedia Brown books. He was a brilliant boy detective. I read them when I was young and my grandsons loved them, too.

The are big fans of the Wingfeather books, too.

I loved Encyclopedia Brown! Smile

Also loved Scott Corbett books, Homer Price, Henry Reed (both by Robery McClosky), Henry and Ribsy books (Beverly Cleary), Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (series), and anything by Sid Fleischman. I was a pretty voracious reader as a kid and basically read anything I could get my hands on so I can't tell you much about reading levels or anything else. Inappropriate content would have been over my head at that point.

the Redwall series is really good. It is along the lines of Narnia, talking animals, kingdoms and battles, etc.

Hope this is not to late. There is an author named Wayne Thomas Batson who writes fantastic adventure stories and he is a Christian. My boys love his stuff and still read his books even now in their 20's. The Isle of series is the favorite. Isle of Swords, Isle of Fire and Isle of Stars. Those books made my sons Christmas wish list every year!

"When Do We Get There?" ... A common "encouragement" from veteran homeschooling parents is that homeschooling is not a sprint, but a marathon. It's the truth, not a myth. Really!
