The second in a series, Jack and Midge are still settling in to life in the suburbs with their new friends. Summer is full of new adventures and new friends, a wholesome middle-grade read, with strong themes of Creation and Stewardship.
A fun fast paced read, I loved getting to know more of the Tree Street kids in this second installation to the series, especially Ruthie and Roger as the kids head to Super Stewardship VBS. I loved Roger and his walkie talkie communication with his mother, and Ruthie's Capt. Beans photoshoots.
This was a fun read that I enjoyed as an adult, with fun facts and wildlife survival tips thrown in along the way. I think that this would be a fun book to read aloud as a family before bedtime or great for middle grade readers, I loved the throwback to the 1990's which as a simpler time -- I feel so old saying that!
Overall, a well balanced read with a great pace and excellent plot and characters. Strong themes of faith are integrated smoothly into the story. A stand out series for young readers that I would happily recommend!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
