“Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure” by Ken Ham with Karen Hansel


“Hey, kids! Grab your explorer’s cap and get ready for this one-of-a-kind Grand Canyon adventure! Charlie, a spirited monkey, and his triceratops buddy, Trike, set off with a burly one-eyed tour guide to hike deep into the Grand Canyon. But there’s trouble on the trail when Charlie goes off on his own to dig for fossils. What’s more, Charlie’s convinced the tour guide is a thief, but any plans to catch him are quickly foiled. Once in the Canyon, Trike does his best to explain to his friend the worldwide Flood and why we can trust the Bible. Finally, with the tour guide’s help, Charlie understands the truth in a way that will change his life forever.”

My Thoughts-
This book is really cool. It takes one of the Greatest Wonders of the World and shows how is was formed, using Biblical accounts.
The characters are cute and lovable and make reading it with your child very easy. Each page has something that flips out, pulls out, or opens up with more little tidbits/photos about the Grand Canyon. Adding a ton more to the value of this book.

There is a lesson inside a lesson. Not only does this book teach you about how God formed the Grand Canyon but it teaches you about trusting other and to not judge them by how they look. Charlie didn’t trust his tour guide because he had an eye patch like a pirate, but soon enough Charlie found out that just because the guide looked scary doesn’t mean he is. The tour guide ended up being a nice guy and even saved Charlie for danger.

I would recommend this book not only to Homeschooling families but any family who believes in the Bible. It is geared toward children ages 4-10.
