We received the ebook Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Makers by Christian Liberty Press to review. I had heard about their great books, but never read one. We are hooked now! Christian Liberty Press is the publishing division of Christian Liberty Academy School System. This division was created 25 years ago to provide school materials for Christian school and homeschool use.
From their website: This first book in the series by Douglas Bond tells the story of two teens who, while on vacation in England, are befriended by an elderly English gentlemen called Mr. Pipes. Through this relationship they learn about famous British hymn writers. They also learn about the value of traditional worship and praise.
Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Makers, written by Douglas Bond, is the first book in the Mr. Pipes series. The 242 page book is available as an ebook for $8.79 and in print for $9.89. The other books in the series are also avaialbe for $9.89 or as a set for $38.99. These book are recommended for readers in 7th-10th grade.
I was excited for Allie to read this book. She is an avid reader going into 8th grade. She just got an e-reader and we were looking forward to trying it out for school work. We have no problem downloading it!
Here’s what Allie had to say about it-
- The book is very well written and has a great story line, it draws you in.
- It has great stories about hymn makers. It tells about where they lived, went to college/school and other great facts including their hymns
- I liked that I recognized these hymns even though the version we have in our church is a little updated.
- I personally really like the book, but cant figure out why the teens in the book wouldn’t like old things. They are the best.
- As for the age range I think the message it’s sending out is for middle and high school.
- Over all I think it would be perfect for all ages to help you rethink your spiritual life in a great story- more of a reminder and a very touching story.
I liked this book because I knew I could trust it’s contents to be wholesome. I really liked how history was woven through this story in a very memorable way. I look forward to getting more books from Christian Liberty Press!
