Mesi's Season of Change by Pam Davis is another title in the Girls 'N Grace series. Mesi is a young girl of the Ashanti tribe in Africa. Along with her mentor, Miss Ama, Mesi has taken on a quest to build a church for her village, despite the scoffing she faces from relatives and other children. She and her best friend Kwasi find Numu, a young boy from the Kienese tribe the rivals of the Ashanti, who has been wounded and is in need of help. The two girls secret him in a small shed, but Kwasi refuses to help any more because she feels disloyal to her tribe. Mesi wonders if she is endangering her entire village, but feels compelled to offer grace and mercy to Numu as God has given to her. Together the two children bring their tribes together, and Mesi is able to share the story of God's grace with more people than she ever expected. This chapter book is written at a second to third grade level with a mildly challenging vocabulary. At several points in the book are little orange bubbles with ".com" in them; each of these is a teaching point the reader can go online to learn more about. At the end of the book, there is a short educational section talking about animals and geography in Africa. I would highly recommend this book for parents who have daughter who love to read. The book teaches about children living in another country, as well as has a wonderful lesson about God's grace.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
