{{Book Review}} Ishtar’s Odyssey | A Family Story for Advent



A new Advent family devotional from the author of Jotham’s Journey! Fourth in a set of Advent adventure books for families, Ishtar’s Odyssey follows the ten-year-old son of a Persian wise man as their caravan follows a star across the desert. Ishtar would just as soon stay in the comfort of the palace, but slowly he learns that there’s much to see, do, and learn in this world that can’t be experienced in school. He eventually meets Jotham, Bartholomew, and Tabitha as he follows his father and uncles in their search for a newborn king.


Arnold Ytreeide’s family advent devotionals have become a much-loved Christmas tradition, enjoyed by multiple generations. With over 100,000 in print they include Jotham’s JourneyBartholomew’s Passage, and Tabitha’s Travels.


*My Review*
This book is a nice book geared for Advent. Each day has a part of the story of Ishtar that includes a short devotional at the end. 

The contents of this book are delightfully done with great illustrations.

 It would be a great family devotional, but, it could also be done individually. I would say this book is geared to children between the ages of 8 and 12, maybe 6.

I think that this book wonderful and is a great educational way to discuss Advent all the while doing family devotion time.
