Within the pages, you will read about children living in Laos, Bangladesh, Nepal, China, Iran and Vietnam. Spending 2-4 weeks on each country (as laid out in the table of contents), it will take 16 weeks to complete this journey throughout Asia. In addition to the engaging stories (keep tissues handy , Mama!), there are activities such as discussions of the stories, games, word searches, and more. Through these activities, you and your children will learn more about the country and the people living there - all from a Biblical worldview.
Not only will you be learning about these people, you will be encouraged to pray for them. Too often we think of prayer as a last resort. While reading, I was reminded that praying is the best thing that can be done. This is so encouraging to our children who want to help but feel they are too small to make a difference.
Even though the message is serious and the stories often moved me to tears, this is very fun to read and do with my children. We clicked through the included links to the Kids of Courage site (from Voice of the Martyrs) and downloaded the related Bold Believers Activity Books. You can use Asia: Its People and History as a springboard for deeper studies or projects, homeschool history or geography, to add in with missionary studies, with children in a church class or co-op setting. It is very versatile.
Asia:Its People and History by Bonnie Rose Hudson is available as either an e-book or in print. The print version will be available soon through Amazon. You can find the e-book (in many formats-epub, mobi, pdf) at Amazon, Smashwords, and The Old Schoolhouse. Through March 15th you can save 25% with PROMO CODE: 02asia14! at TOS.
