    2. It was enjoyable reading this book to my 4yo son. While some parts would get a little slow, the majority of it was pleasant. It follows the life of a 4yo boy named Mac, who lives in a Protestant Christian family in Scotland during the 1700s. It provides a good example of how a Christian family handles various situations and how Mac learns boldness. It's a useful book to bring about conversations on various topics, such as: (view spoiler)[death, courage, justification, standing up to emotionally [...]

    3. Please read this, if only to learn how to properly teach children the answer to, "What is Justification?" This is one of my top ten favorites.

    4. I have been privileged to read this book aloud to my 8yr old brother. We really enjoyed walking through the story together.The story is at heart a simple one of a young boy growing in courage and understanding. He likes to take his clothes off, wrestles with his brothers, and is scared of ghosts.Throughout the story, his family shows love, courage, and wholesome relationships. As the Mac loves to listen to stories about Scotland's history (particularly the battle in which Grandfather lost his ey [...]

    5. This book makes a great read-aloud! Having been written by an elder of a church in the same denomination is mine, I find the like-mindedness of the theology refreshing. The Chatechism Nelson scene (What is Justification?) is priceless, the relationships of the family are so real, and the characters so vivid (you know how I like my characters) that it makes for a first-rate story. Definitely a favorite!

    6. Read years ago to boys (seems best about ages 8 and up). Re-reading to girls. Nice to combine with history studies.

    7. My mom read this book out loud to all of us twice in one year. We all (boys and girls from 6-18 years old) LOVED this book. It is written from the 4 or 5 year old little brothers' point of view and is written in a very adorable way.

    8. Really good book for boys, danger, thieves, strong father/mother, good old Scottish ways, catechisms ( redundant?), suspense, cowardly pastor who gets a little redemption, puffins, witches.ry enjoyable. 2nd of Jones' books of this kind we've read.

    9. I am judging this book harshly because Jones is such a talented writer. The plot seemed hurried and there was the unnecessary scene of throwing the cat off of the cliff!

    10. Actually I just finished the audio series - It is a great book and the fact that it is read with real Scottish brogue makes it a great way to experience this work!

    11. Love Douglas Jones' historical fiction for young people. Great addition to our history studies. I agree with others' comments that the story is a little rushed.
