The Family Pilgrim’s Progress
Originally created and published by Jean Watson in 1983, this modern re-writing and simplification of The Pilgrim’s Progress is probably the best children’s edition ever put together of Bunyan’s classic.
Written for ages 8-14. The book is full of extra features throughout, explaining the Biblical meaning of the character names and of the places they visit – greatly clarifying the content to anyone unfamiliar with the story or the Scriptures.
Commendation from a Young Reader:
“Dear Jean Watson, I love reading your books, especially Corrie Ten Boom. I think your book is very fascinating and interesting. It also provides children with vivid information of history. The part that captures my attention most is the questions that you asked and the prayers that you wrote. Be sure to write more! I am your biggest fan!”
