It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!
You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

Having read and reviewed Mike Thaler’s Inn the Beginning, I was happy to read and review another children’s book by him. While I, as an adult, enjoyed Inn the Beginning the most, this one was another one that my children liked, so therefore I have to give kudos yet again to Mike Thaler for another great book for kids! Once again, the illustrations are full of color and show silly happenings that flow with the story and capture children’s eyes. With a message of getting to know God better by learning more about Him through school, this is a great 5 star kids book for both home libraries and Sunday School class rooms.
