Review 1 for Sir Gibbie, Classics for Young Readers
Date:May 21, 2010
This book is the one of, if not the, best books for understanding Godly character development. Gibbie is a guileless, trusting young man who learns many hard lessons without becoming hard himself. It is a must read for all children through Junior High age. The longer original version or the edited version for adults is a must read for those who are older and who want to develop a Christlike character.

Review 2 for Sir Gibbie, Classics for Young Readers
Date:December 6, 2007
This is an inspiring book with an awesome message. My 11 year old and I both enjoyed it immensely. It moves along quickly and has enough adventure to be engaging. Since the story takes place so long ago, younger readers will likely need a bit of help understanding a few things, but it's well worth having to get assistance. Highly recommended.
