Publisher: Bay Light Publishing, ©2000

Material: hard cover

Summary: Did Mr. White, Brad’s science teacher, just say that science projects were due in one month? That's not enough time. Brad had planned an elaborate science project; but now, he's not so sure. He explained his predicament to his Dad, who told him the story of Moses and his efforts to get the Hebrews to the promised land. Brad decided to accept the challenge. Was he successful? You’ll have to read the book to find out. This book modernizes a classic story from the Old Testament for today's kids.

Recommended Age: read together: 5 to 8; read yourself: 8 to 10

Interest Level: 5 to 9

Adult Reader Reaction: All of the stories in this series are clean, wholesome, attractve, and (I believe) interesting to their target audience. They could have been chapters in a single volume, as well as individual books (the current format).

Pros: To an adolescent, all problems are insurmountable and life-threatening. Using the story of Moses as a parable, the author tells a story, praises the rewards of hard work and determination, and polishes the reader’s self-image.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow or buy. Parents or teachers searching for a wholesome story with meaning for young readers will find this meets their needs. It is a logical discussion-starter in Sunday school class, as well.
