Grace & Truth Books is an online Christian bookstore. Something that makes them unique is that they are family owned and ran. They also publish books with old fashioned values and are not all about the trends.
We received 2 books from their Boys Heritage collection.
Gerrit and His Dog $5.50 is a book in which the author is unknown and had previously been out of print. Grace and Truth brought it back. It is about a boy named Gerrit and his dog named Brownie. Gerrit is being raised by his uncle. Gerrit and Brownie get separated and do end up finding each other again. Throughout this story your child will see the hand of God and the blessings both Gerrit and Brownie receive through difficult times.
There is a second story in the back of this book, The Royal Law. This story helps your children to understand the commandment of Do Unto Others, as You Would Want Done Unto You.
Tommy really enjoyed these stories. He is very into old fashioned, good value type reading and this type of book is often hard to find.
The second book we received was A Faithful Boys Influence $6.25. “Aunt Friendly” is the author of this book.
In true Grace and Truth style this book has the same old fashioned, good, wholesome values as the other one we read. This book is about a boy who visits his aunt and by example helps the townspeople to walk closer with The Lord. The character qualities in the main character, Charlie, are some that I am grateful Tommy was able to read about. He is a great example.
There is a second part in this book as well. Ears for Little Gleaners. Which is a collection of 19th Century Sunday School lessons.
Both of these books were easy enough reads for Tommy that he was able to enjoy them and understand them without to much frustration. They were also a good length for him. He doesn’t really enjoy novels.
Grace and Truth Books sells all of their Heritage Series as a set, which is 9 books for $39. These books range for boys ages 8-14.
