B and C were very excited to get Revenge of the Red Knight book. We used it for our nighttime story and for our daily reading as well. The kids couldn’t wait to read more.
B and C love reading Christian books. The book was exciting with two young children venturing through time and space.
What I Liked:
- B and C were very eager to have it read to them.
- It was easy enough B could have read it to himself or to his sister.
- The importance of honor, justice, prayer, and fair jousting.
What I Disliked:
- Not enough of a historical background.
What B (boy, age seven, second grade in the fall) Liked and Disliked:
I loved Revenge of the Red Knight. Why? Sir Andrew is a good knight. He is the same knight who saved Beth and Patrick in Peril in the Palace. There was a tournament against Hugh and Roderick, because Hugh wanted to lock people in Lord Darkthorn’s tower, which he could not do.
I think this book is good for kids my age to read to themselves or to have someone read to them.
What C (girl, age five, kindergarten in the fall) Liked and Disliked:
It was good, good, good. It was fun to learn about knights. Sir Andrew had the ring for the Imagination Station. At the beginning of the book the kids were in a cave full of bats instead of going to Whit’s End.
It is good for kids my age.
Would I Recommend: I would highly recommend Revenge of the Red Knight. It should be in every library.
