Texting Through Time

I'm very excited to post about a terrific book by a wonderful author!  Texting Through Time:  John Taylor and the Mystery Puzzle is the second Texting Through Time book by Christy Monson.  They are in the vein of the Magic Tree House books that are so popular among young readers.  I know my three children (two 7-year-old boys, and one 10-year-old girl) are going to love this book, and it was a quick and fun read for me, as well!

Micah and Alicia's father has created a time traveling cell phone, and in this installment, they travel through time to various events in the life of John Taylor.  I loved the accurate historical details, as well as the way some serious questions (like 'Why does God allow bad things to happen?' and 'Does Heavenly Father love me even when I make a mistake?') were addressed in a simple and sincere way without slowing the story down.  I even learned a few things about the life of John Taylor as Micah and Alicia tried to solve the mystery puzzle that would allow them to return home.

This book would make a terrific Christmas gift for the young readers in your life!  Plus, if you order your copy TODAY from Amazon or Barnes and Noble and then go leave a comment on one of Christy's web sites listed below, you'll be entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon Gift Certificate!

Also, for any of my northern Utah readers who would like to meet Christy (and you really do want to meet her, she's great) the official launch party will be held on Friday, November 23 at the Ogden Temple Deseret Book from 2:00 - 3:30 pm.
