The Hiding Place Young Reader's Review


 About the Book

Bestselling, Timeless Book Now Abridged for Young Readers
Corrie ten Boom was loved the world over for her heroism and remarkable faith. The first of her bestselling books, "The Hiding Place," tells the riveting true story of how her gentle Dutch family risked their lives during World War II to help Jews escape the Nazis. She and many of her family members were arrested and sent to concentration camps. But this middle-aged watchmaker survived, and spent the
rest of her life spreading the truth that no matter how deep the pit, God's love is deeper still.
This timeless message now reaches a new generation in this special edition, which has been crafted especially for ages nine through twelve. Young readers will learn that every experience we face is the perfect preparation for the future only God can see. (Goodreads)

My Review

I read The Hiding Place years ago and thought it was a great book depicting our past. I was curious to read the young reader's edition though. This edition is more compact and easier to read. There are multiple pictures/drawings as well that are kind of a nice addition. I don't think there are as many details as there are in the first edition but the book still tells the story or Corrie Ten Boom. I think it's perfect for younger readers because they won't be intimidated with a huge book and still get the amazing true story. At the back of the book it talks about what has happened since this story and what Corrie Ten Boom went on to accomplish in her life. It's really an incredible story and I hope this book gets younger folks interested as well. 
"I received this book from Chosen books for free in exchange for an honest review."
