I read this with my 5 kids ages 6-14. We LOVED it! The story lent itself to great discussions. It was historical, interesting, and full of adventure. I highly recommend this one as a read aloud for kids 8 and above. My 6 year old wasn’t too interested, but my other 4 kids really enjoyed it.
We read this aloud along with History 3, and it led to some great discussions (my kids are 10, 8, and 6). We always read longer than planned!

Captured by Romans in the forests of Gaul, Madoc is sold as a slave to a Roman centurion stationed in Judea. Though he is not a hard master, Madoc is determined to escape and find his mother. However, the story takes a turn when Madoc and his master meet followers of Jesus and hear about the new way of living he taught. This story is not only engaging and packed with great messages, but it also teaches about the historical time period and the growing influence of the early Christian faith.
This book is a suggested read-aloud for the History Year 3 course and is included in the optional History 3 Book Pack.
