A Very Different School by Peter Pollock is one of the best kid’s books I’ve read in a long time! I am 18 years old, and I was enticed by the characters and story line of A Very Different School…I finished it in a day. I got my little 7-year old brother to start reading it, and he loves it too!
There is a good mixture of biblical truth and kid-worthy fun in this book. Professor Alexander’s kooky attitude is so amusing, and it is so easy to imagine him interacting with the kids in the book. The adventures of going back in time to biblical history being made is such a fun idea and can really open kids’ gateway to imagination.
I know a lot of parents who are worried about subliminal messages and inappropriate content when picking a book for their kids, without getting a “little kids” picture book. With this book, and the rest in the series to come, there is no worries that the content is safe, readable, and enjoyable. We all know parents don’t have ample time to spend researching books for their kids, and with this, there’s no need to! But you might just get dragged into reading it yourself!
