I am super excited to have the opportunity to introduce you to some new friends – Charlie, a spirited monkey, and his triceratops buddy, Trike. Charlie & Trike are the main characters in the new book Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure – first book in a new series by Ken Ham called The Green Notebook Series. This series is published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group – one of my personal favorite publishers of children’s books and educational books with a creationist worldview.
Here’s a bit about what you can look forward to in this book:
In this first presentation of the Green Notebook Series, Charlie and his triceratops buddy, Trike, set off with a burly one-eyed tour guide and a passel of mules to hike deep into Grand Canyon. But there’s trouble on the trail when Charlie goes off on his own to dig for fossils. What’s more, Charlie’s convinced the tour guide is a thief, but any plans to catch him are quickly foiled. Once in the Canyon, Trike does his best to explain to his friend the worldwide Flood and why we can trust the Bible. Finally, with the help of the tour guide, Charlie sees and understands the truth in a way that will change his life forever.
Heidi Says . . . I love this book. It’s a good-sized hardback book that contains an interesting adventure story featuring some fun characters. The pages are very sturdy and durable and include flaps to list, mini-books to read, maps to open, a glimpse into Charlie’s “green notebook” and a few more surprises. In other words, it’s not your typical book – it’s much more fun and interactive!
And, it’s by Ken Ham. ‘Nuff said, right? I love listening to Answers . . . with Ken Ham on the radio, and have found all of his books to be interesting and thought-provoking. And have you been to the Creation Museum yet? We visited not long after it had opened, and would love to return sometime. Anyway, all that to say that this book is no exception to what you’ve come to expect from Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis (and New Leaf Publishing Group).
I think Charlie & Trike will work their way into kids hearts everywhere, and I’m sure that The Green Notebook Series will be a favorite in our home.
