The Sower

Stories of Famous Christians for ages 9 to 14

Sower Series Biographies The Sower Series Biographies offer children a chance to experience the Christ-inspired pathways followed by some heroic men and women. Their impact on our lives, as well as a great deal of factual information, is skillfully presented to the child within the framework of an interest-holding story.

Over the years, The Sower Series books have established their appeal with a wide range of readers. Parents write in to say how much they enjoyed the books while reading them aloud to their children. Thus it is difficult to assign a given book to a particular grade level. We feel that the following arrangement is sound especially when The Sower Series books are being used for book reports or other school related projects.

5th Grade - Christopher Columbus, Billy Sunday, Mahalia Jackson, Teresa of Calcutta,
                       and The Wright Brothers
6th Grade - Abigail Adams, Johnny Appleseed, George Washington Carver, Francis
                       Scott Key, Abraham Lincoln, Florence Nightingale, and David Livingstone
7th Grade - George Friderich Handel, Robert E. Lee, Samuel Morse, Samuel Smith,
                       George Washington, Susanna Wesley, Daniel Webster
8th Grade - Johannes Kepler, Issac Newton, Louis Pasteur, Stonewall Jackson,
                       Robert Boyle, William Jennings Bryan, Jason Lee, and Noah Webster
