Great book! The authors weave the stories of the Bible seamlessly with animal stories to keep the children engaged. The books in this series are perfect for ages 4-8 but my thirteen year old enjoyed it as well. Anyone looking for a fun way to share God's stories with their children will consider these books a must read!~Sara H.
This is a Great book! I have read this book cover to cover, and it is a wonderful story for children. The animals in the book tell a captivating story of the creation of the earth.~Dustin T.
MY GRANDDAUGHTER WAS ENTERTAINED BY THE ANIMALS RELATING BIBLICAL TRUTHS IN A CONCISE, ENTERTAINING PROSE A MUST READ FOR PARENTS/GRANDPARENTS LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT WAY TO RELAY BIBLE STORIES. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!~SANDRA G.
I have read 2 to the grandson's and they listened intently. Your stories are true to scripture as I read it. I have read them all. The animal characters are very fun to hold the child's interest.~Carol N.
Thank you for the opportunity to preview your children's books. I applaud you for trying to meet a need in Christian children's literature. I love the premise of teaching Bible stories to children in a way they can relate to and understand. The stories were well-written and I loved the illustrations.~Linda L.

Iím always on the lookout for great books for my boys- they are in 1st grade and Kindergarten, and are so excited about learning to read! I want to foster that love as much as I can, so we purchase quite a few books. Itís hard, though, to find great ones that are Christian and Bible based, which is why I was so excited to be able to review The BackYard Trio series by Jason Burkhardt and Sara Kendall. We LOVE them in our house! First of all, the illustrations are adorable, fun, and incredibly well done. Both my boys and I just love them. Second of all, the stories are fabulous and the authors do a great job of using the three animals (EZ, Scooter, and Avra) to teach us about Bible stories in a way that is interesting and fun. I literally cannot say enough about these books. They are just what we needed in our house. We just love this childrenís Christian books, and we know you will too!~Joanna The Bragging Mommy
We have read all three books (the first three in the series) in our Children's Church, age 4-2nd grade. The kids loved the characters & the story they were associated with. For this age they were a little long. But overall I would rank them a 9+.~Melissa Y. Lakeland Street Baptist Church, Ft. Worth, TX.
I have read them and read them to my nine-year-old daughter. The books are well written and engaging. They include a lot of detail in the telling of the Bible stories that many children's books would leave out. Thanks for not skimping on the story.~Debora B. Christ Church, Ft. Worth, TX.
I ordered a set of these books for my great niece, authored by Sara Kendall and my good friend Jason Burkhardt. They are an adorable journey through the bible, the stories and artwork are amazing! They donate a portion of each sale to animal welfare Check them out!~Karen C.
