Excerpts from Reviews for this book:
Seldom do pastors and others who teach and preach the Bible have the opportunity to read Biblical history in a work that is both accurate and accessible. Ms. Reeves has produced such a work in her latest book. The reading level is good for interested adults to read to older children and for teens to read for themselves. The introduction of joyful observers called glops give a soothing and happy response to the narrative.
- Reverend Doctor Ruth Fowler, Retired Pastor, Brownfield, TX
Turn the pages of this book and enter the land of God’s people during a time when wars raged and kings reigned. The history of the Holy Land is tied together with the events chronicled in the scriptures. Ms. Reeves takes readers on a journey in the Holy Land through the eyes of the prophets Elijah, Elisha, Amos, Jeremiah, and many others. Observe the scenes of the Bible with the ever-present little Glops and learn from their lessons of history. Written in an easy-to-read style, the language of this book is clear and appealing to all ages. The photos and illustrations are plentiful, and many are works of art by masters over the centuries. Watch as God brings about change in the hearts of all men in preparation for the promised Messiah, Jesus.
- Verna Coy, Author/Writer, Book Critic/Reviewer, Nenana, AK
This book is written in easily understood details of God’s hope for a united Kingdom of Israel following the path of God’s goodness and mercy and how it was divided by man’s evil and selfish ways. It is definitely a “must read” for children or any new believer who desires to learn and better understand the Bible.
- Juanita Sacco, Christian for 57 Years, Amarillo, TX
The author has written about the period of time when Israel splits into two kingdoms, and then becomes restored, and made it understandable for younger readers. She has included the playful, insightful glops to make the types of comments that enlighten and mimic those of children reading or hearing the stories. Charts and plenty of illustrations keep one’s interest and add to understanding. This book is quite large and will provide may hours of entertainment and instruction.
- Jeannie F Linzie, Retired Library Associate, Las Vegas, NM

New Book in final stage of review
You are the first to know that this book is written and in the final stage of review with my very capable editor and long-time friend from Amherst! Hooray! It seems that I have worked on this book FOREVER! It hasn't really been that long, though.
The previous one, Book 7 about Kings Saul, David, and Solomon, was published in March 2022. Hopefully this one, Book 8, will be ready for publication in April or May. As has been the case with each newer book of the "Glops" series, this book is for a more mature but still youthful audience, and is longer than the previous book. However, it is still "Christian Historical Fiction for Kids and Their Adults."
Many of God’s people in the kingdom rebelled when their king, who was King David’s grandson, treated them too harshly. The kingdom divided: north became “Israel,” and south became “Judah.” God’s prophets warned the people to worship the LORD, keep His Laws, and help others in need. Otherwise, foreign invaders would capture and exile them from both kingdoms and destroy Jerusalem. The prophecies came true. Several prophets spoke of restoration, hope, and the coming Messiah, or Savior. Glops wondered how God would restore and save the exiled people and the Holy Land.
Maybe between books I can do some sewing. My husband gave me a wonderful sewing machine for Christmas 2021. I love it. It's my first brand new sewing machine, ever! It sews everything from satin and lace to denim and canvas.
