With the help of his friends and his faith in God, Junior finds the courage to jump onto the stage and perform with his friends in a winning number.

BOB AND LARRY IN THE CASE OF THE MISSING PATIENCE

THE FAIREST TOWN IN THE WEST

Sherriff Bob and Deputy Larry have their hands full when the Ratt Scallion gang blows into town. It's up to Bob and Larry to settle the chaos, reminding both the residents and the Ratt Scallion gang that there is nothing to gain by behaving badly.  

BOB AND LARRY'S CREATION VACATION
A Lesson about Creation

Bob and Larry take off for a wonderful adventure across the world so they can see all that God created live and in person. In just seven days, Bob and Larry follow the path of God, discovering all of what he was able to accomplish in one week. They even rest on the seventh day, just as God did.  


There are some books that are an instant hit with my son and this set of 4 books are one of those super-hits! Though he loves to read with me, he took the initiative of taking the books by himself and spent time looking at them. So the presentation of illustrations and well-spaced words have successfully paid off! We really liked the way the book kept his attention. The stories are short, interesting and thrilling with humor incorporated to make it more interesting.

Illustrations are very colorful and fill 3/4th of the page, leaving room for 4 lines per page. Words are printed in large print and every effort has been made to make it appealing to a small child.

The books are amazing and even made way for some crunchy cucumber snack as we read them ! " I am eating Bob!" Even if you have never watched or read veggie tales before, you will enjoy these books.

It was excellent for a read aloud session although I felt it would be hard for young readers who are beginning to sound out word and sentences to pronounce or read words like "detective" or "badger". It could be made one step easier to read by simplifying the words.

You can buy the above books for $3.99 each from Zonderkidz.
