Fans of Karen Kingsbury’s Baxter Family can now introduce their kids to the best family ever.

Karen Kingsbury’s Baxter Family books have captured the hearts of millions who have come to think of the Baxter family as their own. Now Karen and her son, Tyler Russell, are telling the childhood stories of the children to inspire and entertain younger readers.

I’ve read ALL the Baxter books, most of them numerous times. I liked this book, but didn’t love it for two reasons. One, I’m not its intended audience, which are children ages 8-12. Two, I’m tired of Ashley Baxter. I’m sure a few Baxter fans threw things at me for that last comment but it’s the truth. I want to know more about Brooke, Kari, Luke and Erin (especially her), but Ashley was once again the star of Best Family Ever. I liked the book because I think it’s filled with great advice, but it’s written for kids and reads that way.

If there are more books forthcoming about the kids, I’ll read them. Despite the fact this book wasn’t intended for me, it was nice to get a look back at what made the Baxters the family that I fell in love with over the course of 20+ books.

I see this new collection as godly advice from the Baxters for the next generation. Know a child you’ve wanted to introduce the Baxters to? This is your chance!

My thanks to the publisher for an advanced copy of this book.
