Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Seth and Tabitha have the typical problems of siblings. Seth wants to have time to play with his friends and do the things that boys do. Tabitha, his big sister, always seems to be in the midst of things, spoiling the fun. When Seth is challenged by his friends to prove his loyalty by choosing them or his sister, Seth chooses his friends. But when Tabitha becomes gravely ill, Seth is plagued with fear that his choice has caused the illness. Only an encounter with the healing Jesus can change his mind, and the outcome of the story. Church libraries and after-school programs will want to include this series in their collections. This is part of the "Kidwitness Tales" series. 2000, Bethany House Press, $5.99. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Two short Bible stories, updated with modern language. The Worst Wish is a retelling of Jesus raising Jairus's daughter from the dead. Seth finds his older sister to be a pest; he and his friends encourage her to eat soup laden with bugs and a lizard. Soon after, she falls ill and appears to have died. Their father asks Rabbi Jesus to heal her, and, as in the New Testament story, the daughter comes back to life. Trouble Times Ten is a retelling of chapters 4-15 of Exodus. Ben, 10, is afraid of water, rats, dogs, and bullies so when the plagues come, he is terrified, and his family doesn't know whether to trust Moses or Pharaoh. The plagues (frogs, gnats, boils, hail, locusts, and more) are well described. Amid all of the action is a true sensitivity to the less fortunate, as when Ben rescues his older, retarded brother as the Red Sea parts. Questions at the end of each book, presumably written by kids, help explain each story. Good choices for libraries seeking easy Bible-based novels.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
