Jesus and Magdalene by João Cerqueira is an interesting story that places real-life situations into a fictional setting with the help of Jesus.

The plot was well-done. I felt it was true to the genre and the same for the characters, even though I felt they were bland at times. However, I will say that Jesus was captured in a great way. Who’s to really say how Jesus thinks and acts, but the author did it justice.

The writing style was easy to follow along as well, with plenty of references to the Bible (along with footnotes), but it wasn’t a heavy read.

Overall, this was a solid story. I would have liked to see a bit more from it but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Book Review: Timothy's Adventures by Tanya Packer | Devotional | Children's | Fiction | RachelPoli.com

Title: Timothy’s Adventures
Author: Tanya Packer
Genre: Devotional, Christian, Religious, Children’s

Series: Standalone
Publisher: Westbow Press
Publication Date: April 24, 2018

Timothy is a young boy going through life with the help of his new Sunday school teacher, Nanny, and friends. From getting to know a new Sunday school teacher to finding a box of lost puppies, to sticking up for friends when they’re bullied, Timothy has quite the adventures, navigating through life.

When I read this book, even though it’s a continuous story, I felt as though I was reading short stories. These chapters read as they could be standalones. I’m not entirely sure if that was done on purpose, but I liked it. At the end of each chapter, there are discussion questions for kids to have with their parents along with Bible passages to go over.

Since this is geared toward kids, the writing style and the characters themselves were young and simple. However, some of the chapter topics based on bullying or the color of someone’s skin was done well enough that the children can understand. Honestly, some adults should definitely read this book!

I’m looking forward to see more from this author and I’ll certainly be using this book in my own Sunday school class.
