Escape from the Slave Traders: David Livingstone (Trailblazer Books #5)Escape from the Slave Traders: David Livingstone by Dave Jackson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Overview

This is historical fiction book for children on the life of David Livingstone. It combines fictional characters with historical facts to create a realistic story line of what happened in a way that children can easily understand and learn about.

Escape from the Slave Traders Book ReivewThe Readability

At 129 pages long this is a very short read for the average reader. The target audience is probably a fourth or fifth grade reading level, but could go either way depending on the child’s interest and ability. It also makes a good read-a-loud story for family reading.

The Highlights

The fact that this book brings history to life for children and adults alike makes this a great book. I also really like it due to the fact that it is not just about history and a good story, but also about all of that within the context of God’s Word.

The Downside

The only downside I can think of for this book is that due to the nature of Livingstone’s life there are some parts that may not be appropriate for younger children. There are some parts that describe the war going on that would not be appropriate for all ages. Other than that, I have no issues with this book.

The Recommendation

I highly recommend yet another book from the pen of Dave & Neta Jackson. They are an amazing team who help children learn about men and women who have lived out faith in Christ.
