Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Hidden Treasure

Mrs. Rosey Posey is a woman every child in the neighborhood loves, in Robin Jones Gunn's Level 2 "I Can Read" book Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Hidden Treasure. The kids often come over to play; one day, Mrs. Rosey Posey, dressed like a pirate, brings them a treasure map. The children have been playing pirates in her tree house and are thrilled to add a treasure hunt to their game. They follow the map and various clues until they find a treasure chest - filled with Bibles and candy.

"You found the greatest treasure," Mrs. Rosey Posey says. "Did you know that God's Word is worth more than gold and is sweeter than honey?" She explains the Bible is full of adventure: "There are stories about giants and king and talking donkeys...Every word is true." The children beg her to read her a story from the Bible - and she does.

What I Like: If your child likes playing pirates or enjoys treasure hunts, this is a perfect book for him or her. I love how the author makes the Bible seem so fun while teaching a deep truth - that there is no treasure greater than God's word.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: about 5 - 8
