Day 14: a Non-fiction book
Erick: “The Heavenly Man”, by Brother Yun with Paul Hattaway
I’m actually still in the middle of this book, but I discovered that I don’t read a ton of non-fiction books haha. It’s “the remarkable true story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun.” He is a man who suffered for the Gospel, helped it become a reality in China, and was persecuted for helping launch Christianity in China.
Courtney: “Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever,” by Richard Scarry
I have to be honest here — I don’t read a lot of non-fiction. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just not the first category of literature I jump at the chance to read. I like biography’s of pastors, presidents, politicians, explorer’s and chefs. But again, not something I would say would be a favorite.
All that being said — I went with a children’s non-fiction book. I love children’s books, and this one is one of my favorites. Erick says this might be a little bit of a stretch for non-fiction — but I figured you guys would give me some grace.
I can still remember flipping through those pages when I was little looking at “city scenes” and learning new vocabulary. I had the book memorized. If you have a kiddo just learning to read — get this book. It’s simply wonderful.
