Good Reads for Boys


Our boys have all enjoyed reading
Piet Prins Novels.

They are set in war time and the post-war era in
the context of a Christian home.
The main characters face challenges and
learn through faith-building situations.
Some of the books have been read more than once by
one of our boys ~
the litmus test of a good book,
wouldn't you agree? :)

Hello~
Thank you for your prayers and sweet words.
I am feeling better tonight. I have been using all the home remedies and Day Quil. I am in bed reading and feel better.

You are a blessing to me!

Those books look interesting. Are they older series from the 1950s or 1960s? I think I'll ask my dad about those. Those look really cool!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) :)

p.s. Thanks for your comment on mhy blog :) :) I'm fine. I was sick this past week and I'm catching up with blogging :)

Dear Carrie ~ Oh I am glad you are doing much better! Get lots of rest my friend. :)

Dear Heather in Oregon ~ I don't know when they were originally published, the man who wrote them died in the mid-eighties...they were originally written in the Dutch language. Our boys have all enjoyed them very much. I'm so glad you are feeling better...it's nasty to be sick isn't it? Have a terrific week! :)

Many blessings,
Camille

Camille,
Thank you so much for these recommendations! All of our boys love to read and I'm always looking for more options for them. I haven't heard of either of these series. So glad you shared about them!

Camille said...

Dear Trisha ~ My boys have all enjoyed these...even my *non-reader* boy. I think it was these that got him a little more interested in reading for fun. :)

Many blessings,
Camille

Since I come from an all-girl house growing up, I'm always on the lookout for good boy books since I'm specializing in them! :) I'm bookmarking this for sure!

Camille said...

Dear Heather ~ How precious these young men are...might we raise them for HIS glory alone! Really, these are favourites around here...all our boys say so. :)

Many blessings,
Camille

Thanks so much for these Camille...I am always on the lookout for good books for my boys. It is so much easier to find things to appeal to my girls. God bless!

Camille said...

Dear Jackie ~ Oh yes, girls' books do seem to be prolific, don't they? I do hope your boys like these as much as mine have! :)

Many blessings,

Dear Carmen ~ It's lovely that you stopped by...thank you for letting me know you were here! :) I clicked over to your blog to learn that your children are younger than ours. In that case, I would begin with the "Scout" series...the "Shadow" series would be for children a little older than yours. I hope that helps. They are each a complete set, so you could begin with the first in the series ~ "Scout The Secret of the Swamp". I do hope you enjoy them! :)

Many blessings,
Camille
