Christian Liberty Press-Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Makers

Over the past couple of weeks our family has been doing a unit study about the United Kingdom, in honor of the Olympics that were being held in London, England.  I've had the book Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Makers that Christian Liberty Press generously allowed our family to review.  The timing was perfect since the main characters Annie and Drew are "stuck" in Olney, England for the summer and meet a British organist named Mr. Pipes.  Throughout the book we learned about hymns and who wrote them and the love of Christ shines throughout the entire book.  As we were learning about England we used this wonderful book as a read aloud each night before bed.  My children are 11 and 12 years old and they both fell in love and kept asking me to read longer and longer each night so we could finish it quickly.
RRP $10.99 but they have a special rate of only $9.89 right now

I have to be honest I was a little hesitant when we first received the ebook, it sounded a little dry and boring to me but I'm so glad that we gave it a chance because it was so worthy of being read.  I've truly learned that the old saying, "Never judge a book by it's cover" is very true.  I'll be ordering the rest of the books in the series ASAP which include the following:

and the last book in the series is

Accidental Voyage: Discovering Hymns of the Early Centuries

or you can order the complete set for $38.99

Thanks for reading,
