Kregel Publications has a mission to develop and distribute biblically based resources. I was fortunate to receive one of their books to review.
"Bertie's War" by Barbara Tifft Blakey is a story about Bertie who enters seventh grade at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This is a great story to share living history with your children. I love historical fiction. It really helps give an inside look to what daily life was like at a point in history. This story does just that, and more. Bertie not only struggles with the fear of the Communists, but also with just the daily struggles of growing up. I loved getting to know Bertie and more about the 1960's. This is an exceptionally great story to inspire preteens and young teenagers. Bertie's War is available from Kregel Publications for $7.99 here.
