(Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.)
The Adventures of Rooney Cruz RINGLEADERS produced by Truth Becomes Her is a fresh new approach to morning devotionals and reading the Bible. Girls of all ages are taken on an adventure with six women in the New Testament to discover how to use their voice in times of uncertainty.
Each story is profound in meaning, laden with truth and bravery. It takes courage to discover God’s hidden message behind each person’s journey. And one thing still rings true today for everyone everywhere, His word never fails.
From the author Erin Weidemann, “Here’s to you, Little Belle, and to learning what it means to be a ringleader: a girl whose life, love, and leadership come together in perfect harmony to make the impact in the world that only she can make.”
I invite your family to find out how the Ringleaders (Elizabeth, Mary, Samaritan woman, Mary and Martha, and Mary Magdalene) will change your daughters life!
Through wonderful illustrations, large printed text, glossy pages, and hardcover, this book lets each girl uncover every story in an exciting way.
Let me introduce you to Rooney Cruz, a little girl who somehow always finds herself in a predicament of sorts. The setting takes place in school, so every girl can identify with this in some way, even if they are home educated. And Rooney’s guide throughout the entire book is Mari, an angel. Together the two of them will discover the secret meaning of truth behind each Woman of God and how Rooney can apply it to her current situation.
Your daughter will learn the concepts of trust, true obedience, faith, believing in the impossible, discernment and the power of prayer. What a beautiful way to nurture their spirit and delight their senses all in one.
~Our family was already familiar with the Bible Belles individual book series, as we paired these with a scouting patch program. So when the Ringleaders book was written we were more than thrilled to review this.
My 5th grade student was elated when The Adventures of Rooney Cruz Ringleaders showed up in the mailbox. In one sitting she had the entire book read, because she just could not put it down. My 3rd grade student and I read the book together as a read aloud. Although the simple sentence structure allowed her to feel confident to read a lot of it on her own to me. Each story has a powerful message and we knew once we started reading it would be difficult to stop.
Both girls loved all nine chapters and were disappointed when the story came to an end. I was pleased with their willingness to read independently.
There is a scripture at the end of each chapter for further exploration and discussion. And if you have your daughter cross reference the scripture with the Bible version she owns its a bonus for learning different words used to accomplish the same meaning.
Incorporating this book into your daughters life is fairly simple. Use as a read aloud, Bible curriculum or begin teaching her to read a chapter at a time during her quiet times. Explore the actual Bible story, read it and compare with the Ringleaders story. There is also a study guide, which parallels with the book, a devotional for girls, as well as a journal for mothers/grandmothers and daughters to work through together, and a Ringleaders coloring book for kinesthetic learners.
There are so many ways to utilize this resource well. Don’t worry I am certain your daughter will creatively think of something!
Give your daughter the power to find her voice through discovery of six women who changed history. Reading The Adventures of Rooney Cruz RINGLEADERS by Truth Becomes Her will change who she is and give her insight into who she wants to become in the future.
