Introduce your 6–7 year old to Manju in The Hidden Village. Nobody believes Manju when he finds a hungry little village hidden in the mangrove trees. How can he help his new friends survive? How can he teach them about God?
I’m so excited to share my first early reader with JourneyForth! Manju is a young boy in West Bengal, India, who discovers a problem and sets off to do something about it. But when all his best efforts seem to fail and no one believes him, what else can he do?
Your young readers can come along with Manju on an adventure to discover what happens when they encounter a problem and ask God to help. Along the way, they’ll discover what life is like in a small corner of India; learn about new plants, animals, and food; and find that God can use anyone – including them – to change the world.
You can purchase The Hidden Village from at JourneyForth, Christianbook.com, and Amazon.com. Be sure to stop back and let us know what you think of it, and tell your friends to pick up a copy, too.
