Great Mogul Diamond

I know, I know…you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover. I just couldn’t help myself!  The cover of this book intrigued me!!  The story written within intrigued me as well!

What made me want to read this book the most was the fact that I work with children who have ADD/ADHD and Autism.  It’s very hard to capture their attention and many kids with ADD/ADHD HATE to read.  However, the response I got from showing them the “Great Mogul Diamond” would have said it all!

The book’s cover, in and of itself, draws any curious eye…which in a world where visual stimulation is a must for the young generation is a plus.  As you open the book and see the an insurmountable visual stimulation with the black lined pages, half black and half cream colored pages, half comic book style and half regular book style…would keep any child with attention deficit absolutely intrigued!

I had no idea that there were two other books in this chronicle, however it was easy to follow the story line.  Although G.P. Taylor made mention of the other stories…it all flowed together and I didn’t feel lost.  This is definitely a must read for 5th-8th grade school kids!

I received this book from Tyndale House in exchange for a review.  The opinions and views are all my own.
