"Clothed With Thunder" by Vicki Watson

About this book:

  “After sitting through a 4-H demonstration on the evolution of the horse, Rosie and Carrie are determined to present the arguments for creation at the club’s next meeting. The demonstration proves harder to put together than they imagined as everyone offers the girls their opinions. The lessons Rosie learns about creation extend into her life in surprising ways as she faces her old adversary, Billy King, who cheated her out of her first trophy with her pony, Scamper.”

Series: Book #3 in the “Sonrise Stable” series. (Book #1’s review Here!; Book #2’s review Here!)

Spiritual Content- Job 39:19-22 at the beginning & is later discussed; Scriptures are quoted, mentioned & discussed; Prayers & Blessings over food; A Major part of this book is Talks about God, evolution, millions of years, creations & many questions about those three; Talks about faith & how the Bible says the earth was made; Talks about prayers & forgiving; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God; Lots of research for a demonstration on creation; Trying to get people to see the creation side of believing; Mentions of those in the Bible.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘dumb’, an ‘oh my word’, and three ‘stupid’s; Rosie has a hard time letting go of her grudge about Billy and is a bit snippy at him; Mentions of Billy when he abused Bandit (Book #1); A bit of sibling bicker; Looking & Learning about an old horse leg (kind of gross but talks about the science part of it).

Older High School Teens- 

My personal Rating-

This one had a much more serious matter with the debate about Creation vs evaluation and forgiving someone you don’t like. I’ve gone to many creation seminars, so it’s safe to say that I enjoying reading even more about that topic. The “Sonrise Stables” series is a great series for younger kids and it’s an easy, enjoyable read for older teens. I personally think it would be fine for girls and boys. Especially if they’re homeschooled…lots of Spiritual Content & Science in “Clothed with Thunder”! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
