Here’s the description from the publisher:
Thirteen year old Amon, the son of Jotham and Tabitha, enjoys playing with this friends but is also eager to join his father in the temple court where only men are allowed. So when his father is falsely accused of a terrible crime, Amon willingly sacrifices his childhood ways in hopes of saving Jotham’s life.
Along the way, he sees the jubilant crowds that gathered on Palm Sunday, hears the Messiah address the angry mob, is present during the daring betrayal of Judas Iscariot, and witnesses the ultimate sacrifice made on Good Friday.
Continuing the tradition of the popular Advent books – Jotham’s Journey, Bartholomew’s Passage, and Tabitha’s Travels - this captivating story will take you through Lent with read aloud chapters and short devotionals to help make Easter a meaningful season of relection and worship.
Amon’s Adventure by Arnold Ytree is a wonderful family read-aloud story!
The story is enchanting and the devotionals are insightful. It can lead to some wonderful learning, a deeper understanding of the season of Lent and of course, the true meaning of Easter.
The introduction chapter contains one of the best descriptions and understanding of Lent that I have read. It also includes a guide to parents and teachers.
Each chapter (28 total) has a short devotional at the end allowing you and your children to explore a deeper understanding and meaning of Lent/Easter.
Another really neat bonus is that this book is linked to the author’s website and contains special features (click here) that enhance the children’s (and everyone’s) learing while having fun.
We highly recommend this book!
