Book Review: "Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure"


Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure (by Ken Ham with Karen Hansel) is the first in a new collection, The Green Notebook Series. Published by Master Books, this is a delightful read for a parent and the child.

I have never come across a book like this...it is a flavorful combination of Geography , Science, God, the Bible and adventurous fun !

Charlie, the little monkey goes to grand Canyon with his wisdom packed dinosaur Trike. Charlie is intrigued by the presence of fossils on sea creatures on top of the Grand Canyon. It leads to his questions about the flood during Noah's time and about the Bible. Trike answers Charlies's questions with reference from the Bible and tells Charlie about the importance of trusting God.Trike is sure to be loved by all the kids as he is wise and loving, sort of like a wise friend or companion who's always there to answer you and lead you in truth. Talk about leading by example!

This book is big (11.7 x 9.7 x 0.8 inches ) and has an excellent quality hardcover. I love the visual appearance and so did my son! On the inside, you'll find little flap books with maps of the Grand Canyon, Charlie's Green notebook with treasured notes and a lovely poster of Charlie and Trike to post on your child's wall. Excellently put together for little minds!

We've been reading this book at bed time for my 2 yr old and he listens very carefully as the big size of the book and the colorful pages, keep his attention! He has even learned the names of the character.

I really look forward to more of the The Green Notebook Series as they seem to have decoded the way to teach children about the Creator and the creations.

You can buy this at :
- Amazon for $12.47
- Barnes and Noble for $11.51
