The Giant’s Fall is book four in the Imagine series by Matt Koceich. In this story, Wren is excited to get home from school, as this is the day they are mailing the book she wrote to the publishers. It is a book to honor her mother who lost her life to an illness. When she gets off her school bus she find her house engulfed in flames. Her father is standing on the street with the few items he was able to get, among them is not the book. Wren flees the area and the next thing she knows she is in ancient Israel. Here Wren meets a shepherd, David. Together they try to escape from Philistine soldiers and a giant, Goliath.
This is a fun book for children ages 8 to 12 to read. The story gives a great message for children, with God, everything is possible. Even through tragic events like losing her mother and home, Wren is able to see good things in her life. While this story is based on the Bible story of David and Goliath, the author has added a lot to the story. Reading the actual story from the Bible may be necessary to give the child reading this story a true understanding of the real events.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
