I recently visited a book club run by a Christian teacher in one of our local schools. What fun! The girls had just finished reading 'A Pennyworth of Peppermints' and had really enjoyed it – they treated me like a celebrity and I didn't even write it! After talking about publishing for a while the teacher asked the girls what they liked most about the story. They all shot their hands straight up! One girl said she thought Ben (the main character) was very brave when his brothers then his father went to war, then his mum became ill from working in the munitions factory. Another liked the glossary! Another liked the Zeppelin raid in London best – she told us she read that bit to her nan, who had asked to read it herself. One of the girls' favourite parts was when Ben prayed and knew that Jesus was always with him, whatever happened. And eating peppermints at the book club was universally popular. :-)These girls are learning about faith through sharing good stories . . . and the seeds are reaching into their families too. Thank you to all who have prayed for this little club –they are reading Deepest Darkness next. If you are thinking of setting up a book club, do let us all know, we'd love to pray for you too!
