Review – Prince Martin Wins His Sword by Brandon Hale
Prince Martin Wins His Sword by Brandon Hale was a surprise to me. It is a shorter read, but so much is packed into its’ 48 pages.
The author meticulously took the time to write a rhyming book. Hiding these rhyming words within the rich vocabulary that envelopes each page. As you read this book to your child, the story has a wonderful beat, while creating a wonderous vision in your head. This tale is written in a way that allows everyone in the family to enjoy it.
The greatest feat of this book, is its’ ability to produce goodness, truth and beauty. You meet Martin, a young prince who lives in a castle. He would like to obtain a sword from his father. But, not until he proves that he is brave, loyal and true. Come follow Martin on his quest, as he seeks to prove that he has these three virtues. The story will engage, surprise, and entice your sense of musicality all at once.
In today’s age, it is really hard to find books that show your children what Godly virtues look like. I am very impressed with the storyline.
In the book, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child, by Anthony Esolen, he states that, “For a man with a past may be free; but a man without a past, never. It is also why J. R. R. Tolkien provides his worthy hobbits with a veritable chronicle of great deeds, glorious and disastrous, stretching all the way back to the dawn of the world.”
This book allows our boys to understand what being great in God’s eyes truly means. Helping them to become the man that God wants them to be. This is a book that is worth every penny.
