Embracing a Healthy Family: Secret of the Hidden Scrolls Book 5 & 6 by WorthyKids Books Review

Secret of the Hidden Scrolls Book 5 & 6 by WorthyKids Books Review

Several months ago, we reviewed two books in the Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series by WorthyKids Books. Those two books were a hit in our house so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to review 
Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd's Stone (Book 5) and Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion's Roar (Book 6). The two books continue the time-traveling chapter book series and prepared my readers for the next book, book 7, which will be released soon. The soft cover books, 128 pages each, are inexpensive and are perfect for any children's library collection. They are recommended for ages 6-9 in grades 1-3.


Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd's Stone (Book 5) continues the adventurous story of Peter, Mary and their dog, Hank. This time, the children travel to Bethlehem thanks to the ancient scrolls they previously discovered. Their time travel puts them front and center to witness the well known epic battle between David and Goliath. If that wasn't enough, they are faced with solving a dastardly plot while fighting their way against their old enemy, Soldier of Darkness. 

Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion's Roar (Book 6) continues from Book 5 and transports the siblings this time to the city of Babylon. Their battle this time is with a High priest who is plotting to push Daniel out of power. They experience all that Babylon has to offer from chariot races to temples to soldiers. Of course, no story will be right without the ol' familiar Soldier of Darkness.


  • The author, M.J. Thomas, perfects each chapter ending by leaving a cliff hanger thus keeping the children poised to read the next chapter.
  • The illustrations are simple and don't distract from the story. I think if they were in color, it might be more appealing to some but we were fine with the black and white illustrations. 
  • Each story not only teaches about the Bible but also provides life lessons.
  • Each book teaches you to face your fears, stand up with God and conquer any obstacle thrown your way.
  • At the end of each book, there is a list of passages from the Bible that the reader can refer to in order to learn more which we really liked.
  • The book was easy for my eight year old to read and understand.

Overall, we continue to love this series and recommend them. They are well written, adventurous and Christian oriented.

"They are exciting and full of adventure!" ~my granddaughter

"Every single night, she begged to read another chapter before bed."
