contemporary allegory🧐? “The King’s Highway”, by Caryl McAdoo often reminded me John Bunyan’s “Pilgrim’s Progress” gone 21st century. While traveling to their grandparents, 3 children are protected by a dog who guides them and aides them in the growth of their faith, as well; not quite Aslan, but you get the idea.
Lots of interesting characters and experiences join these kids on their journey and added to their education. At times, the action felt a bit forced or unsure but as the story progressed, the pathway was steadier, the dialogue was engaging and it became clear that this journey was far from over once these 3 reached their grandparents.
This would be a great book to read as a family. It’s broken down into chapters and sub chapters that are small enough to accommodate readers of any age. It lends to acting out unique voices and asking questions of application that even the youngest family members can participate in. Don’t let the subtitle dissuade you from getting a copy for your family; you’ll be glad you did📚
