They have published a series of books about Mr. Pipes. I was able to review the first book, in e-book format. Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Makers.
This book is 242 pages in length and contains a story about two children, Annie and Drew they go through Christian history to learn about hymns. Annie and Drew are kids from today’s time period and that makes this book relate-able to today’s kids.
While this book is fictional. It uses real places as the backdrop and describes them true to form. The history described in the book is real.
I really enjoyed how this book leaves you feeling as if you just read a fascinating story, (which you did!) You also feel a closer connection to worshiping Him while learning all about the lives of famous hymn writers.
This book is written with about the 7th grade and up age range in mind. I thoroughly enjoyed the few black and white, very detailed, illustrations throughout the book.
The e-book can be purchased for $8.79 as well as paperback for $9.89. There are four books in the Mr. Pipes set. You can get the entire set for $38.99.
