The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls ~ a TOS review

Morning friends! I have another great set of books for your elementary students this morning. I love sharing great books with you my readers and friends in real life so you are in for a real treat. Today I have a great set of books to share with you from WorthyKids, an imprint of Hachette Book Group called The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Great Escape (Book #3) and The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: Journey to Jericho (Book #4). They are both apart of the The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series.

Both books are penned by M.J. Thomas and present Biblical truths in a fun, fictional way. The target audience for these books are for children in grades 1-3 or ages 6-9. With just over 120 pages each they are perfect for kids just hitting the chapter book level. The pages of each of these paperback books are filled with black and white kid-friendly illustrations that add detail to the story but don’t distract overall.

Two years ago we reviewed the first two books in the series, The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Beginning (Book #1) and The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: Race to the Ark (Book #2) and were blessed to receive an autographed copy of book 3 when it released. With the first three books, McKenzie read them aloud to me and her little brother, but now that she is a strong reader I let her dive into book 4 on her own.

In The Great Escape we continue to follow along with adventures with siblings Peter and Mary and their faithful dog Hank as they wander through the desert of ancient Egypt during the time of the Exodus. First hand they witness the devastation of the plagues as they watch Moses petition Pharaoh to set the Isrealites’ free. The trio races to solve the secret of the scrolls while being chased by a panther and battling Pharaoh’s devious advisor, the Great Magician.

In book 4, Journey to Jericho, Peter, Mary, and Hank are with the Israelites just as they are about to enter the Promised Land. But first they must help sneak Rahab to safety and join a secret mission to Jericho all the while eluding the Man in Black while solving the scroll.

Exposing my children to good quality books is a top priority in our house. McKenzie and I both have enjoyed these books tremendously and think you should definitely check them out to see if they would be a good fit for a young reader in your household.

Oftentimes, finding good quality literature is hard to do, but this series from M.J. Thomas has set the bar high and has us excited to read more! We can’t wait for the next installments of the books to be available. Be sure to see what my 59 CrewMates thought of these two books by clicking the banner below.
