Book Review of Ben Carson: A Chance at Life
Favorite Quotes from the children’s book about Ben Carson:
“Every letter Ben received and read delighted him. He was more convinced than ever that reading was the key to getting out of poverty and into a meaningful career.”
“Ben’s fatigue was gone. He felt focused and energized as he separated the last blood vessel that joined the twin boys. At that moment the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah burst over the stereo system. Ben felt goose bumps rise on his arms. The Banda twins were now separated, and the surgical tables were pulled apart.”
“. . . almost every group of young people he spoke to asked him for his secret to how he had risen from poverty in a single-parent home to such a prominent position. Ben gave a lot of thought to how to answer the question and finally came up with an acrostic — THINK BIG. Each letter stood for something Ben knew was critical for his success.”

We adore Geoff & Janet’s books – just finished Betty Greene yesterday. We have quite a little library of them going and I’m always crying in them too. My boys are like, “mom, why do you always cry”. Each is such a beautiful example of God’s faithfulness in the lives of His people. I pray them continue writing these books for years to come.
Yes! I totally agree. 🙂
