My Review:  
A really wonderfully illustrated book. I did enjoy all the graphic's, as well as reading the story. It took me back to some stories that I read growing up. 

Author Clark Rich Burbridge does have a way of story telling. And if a parent would want to read it to the family, it may be a good story for that. How ever thru out the book I was wondering if it would be a little over one of my grandson's head. He will soon be 10, and a very avid reader. In the story here in Giants in the Land, I had some concerns with it being more detailed in some area's and he would loose interest. But to my surprise he actually liked it. 

I did finish reading it. And I will keep my eye out for more books along this type for our oldest grandson and possible granddaughters. 

So there you have my thoughts and now for the Breath of Life Book Review Rating:

My Review:  
This book as well as the first was full of colorful writing and some well written characters. The author Clark Rich Burbridge seems to have a great love for his writing and it shows. 

As with the first one, there were some times where all the deep detail concerned with the ability for young readers to read alone. But if parents are reading these well illustrated stories it well make for some great reading bonding time. 

I will be keeping an eye out for the next books in the series. Our one grandson did love to read these both and that means a lot to me. He is a very avid reader and has a great interest in chapter books. 

So there you go, this is my thoughts, now for the Breath of Life Book Review Rating of:

  Four Clock Rating!
