My friends at Tommy Nelson gave me the privilege of reviewing a Dystopian, apocalyptic fiction, “Swipe.” All the current rage with the middle age market, this book is targeted to ages 8-11. To be honest, my ten year old is still working on this one; his year end work for school took priority. But, he is excited for the last day of school tomorrow and we’ve already scheduled our daily reading time.
The book has an “end of days setting” with a strong biblical foundation and a fresh, modern perspective. I’m not too crazy about this genre in general, simply because I want my children to be able to easily separate what is fiction and what is true Bible. For this reason, I feel that the suggested age range for this book should be age 10-13 so that a more mature discernment can be applied throughout the reading.
However, that said, the book is an enjoyable read and definitely provides some awesome Bible conversation with your reader.
For that reason, I’m excited to give one copy of this book to one of my readers! Leave a comment answering this question following in order to enter. Giveaway open until Tuesday, 6/5/12, 11pm. Winner announced Wednesday, 6/6/12.
How do you encourage your children to become free-thinkers and discover their faith on their own while still protecting them within your home?
