Readers' Challenge: The Squire and the Scroll
The Squire and The Scroll by Jennie Bishop is fantastic Christian picture book about a young man who guards his heart, vanquishes a dark dragon, rescues his kingdom's greatest treasure, and marries a princess, all due to the simple scroll which he he lives by, representing scripture.
My daughters and I have loved this book, and given it to others as a gift. The illustrations are beautiful, the message is strong but shown through the active adventure of the young squire, and the choices he makes. He is tested, and faithfully relies on what he has learned from the scroll to pass all the tests and triumph over evil.
Re-reading The Squire and The Scroll was a treat, and I wish I could say more, but our day is just packed full today.
