The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

Vacation Bible Snooze (Tales from the Back Pew)

ECLOUD THOUGHTS:


Vacation Bible Snooze is another Tales From The Back Pew book by Mike Thaler that addresses the misconceptions that children can have about Christianity, Christian terminology,  and church functions.  Mike Thaler uses word-play to help children understand the somewhat difficult concepts of the Christian faith.  Jared Lee’s artwork adds another level of humor, as well.  Our family enjoys Mike Thaler’s books, however we do recognize that some families may find the humor  disrespectful.
