Our Homeschool Experience:

Reading the book "Diary of a Real Payne Book 1" with my daughter was a lot of fun. The protagonist EJ, was extremely creative and spunky. We loved to read about her wild adventures as a race car driver and then as a First Lieutenant on a space ship. We also loved to read about her new job at "Marine World." She had been hired as a dolphin trainer.

I loved how the author Annie Tipton included Bible stories in her book. For example, when Mrs. Winkle told EJ about King Nebuchadnezzar. She mentioned how he was a proud king and through Daniel in the lion's den. Mrs Winkle also told her the story about the Persian King Xerxes. The king one day had a huge feast. At the party he was bragging about his beautiful wife Queen Vashti. He requested for her to appear at the feast but she refused. He vanished her and began his search for a wife. He meets Esther and marries her.

We loved this book and we would recommend it.  

I have been given this product free of charge for review purposes.
