    "A Most Excellent Book!"

    A most excellent book!! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story! The characters jump off the "pages", and the narration is very clear and enjoyable to listen to.

    Elsie's faith is inspiring, and though the trials she goes through are heart-wrenching, she never loses her faith in God. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, and now my children are listening to it, and enjoing it, as well. I'm sure they will learn a lot from Elsie's story.

    "Excellent!"

    My 6 and 11 year olds listen with me. We all, so enjoy these stories. Even my teenage son gets pulled in when we listen in the car.
    I believe Elsie to be an excellent example, and the stories are also a great way to increase vocabulary.
