A Pennyworth of Peppermints in set in the Great War. This is a lovely story for children studying the two world wars at school. There’s even a glossary at the end, and some recipes! Ben and his friends Sidney and Vera foil a spy plot, and learn about faith, evil, and who the enemy really is. For 8-11s, it’s a lovely book with lots of detail on what life would have been like for families living through this terrible war, and we walk with Ben as he takes the decision to trust in God. Educational and faith-building!
Beech Bank Girls, A Time Remembered, is a book for girls 10+. The story is set in current times, but Willow finds a diary written 100 years ago, which gives a fascinating insight to the war from one girl’s viewpoint. The Beech Bank Girls discover that although many things change, God remains as faithful now as He was when Grace was alive. If you want to encourage your girls in their faith, or give a girl you love the opportunity to find out what it means to be a Christian, this is the book for you. 🙂
