Education covers a vast amount of topics and likewise, the teachers and methods vary. In today’s culture parents are concerned with the quality of available reading materials that are family-friendly. Enter the Britfield series and author, Chad Stewart (pen name CR Stewart). There are currently three books in the series. All of the novels have a rich historical backdrop and are each in a different geographical setting. Book 1 has a study guide available on the Britfield website.

Due to the adventure-type of setting and family-friendly content, children of all ages are immediately engaged. The adventure series continues throughout each book and a significant aspect of the series is the decisions the children have to make, often that are dire. This helps the reader with critical thinking and is a great launching pad for parents to discuss.

One thing I (Felice) would suggest is reading the book yourself and having an engaging conversation with your children about the content, decisions the children make, and alternatives to the plot. Subjects covered among just a few are historical perspective, geographic location, international travel, family situations, heritage, and family trees, as well as adventure and suspense.

There are plans for full-length movies, plays, and much more. Britfield the Return of the Price is releasing August 2022.
