Book Review: "The Adventures of Geraldine Woolkins" by Karin Kaufman

Geraldine Woolkins is a new mouse and she doesn't know much about the world around her home in the hollow.  She enjoys the adventures her father reads about in The Book of Tales but she isn't sure she is ready when her own life turns into an adventure.

I read "The Adventures of Geraldine Woolkins" to my children at bedtimes.  We really enjoyed it and they were always disappointed when we were unable to read for some reason.  I really liked how things were described as a mouse would.  The names of the locations are also what you'd expect from a mouse ("No Wolves Creek" "Where Blueberries Fall") Throughout the book there are lessons being taught from simple things like not eating your food too quickly to how God sees us all the time.  My 7 year old commented "Whoever wrote this book must know Jesus"  It was a nice feeling to be able to read this book to the kids and know they were being taught Godly things.

I would recommend this book to everyone, even if you don't have kids.  It is a really good book. And it is free on Amazon for Kindle until March 23, 2015.
