I read the original version of The Hiding Place in high school and was very excited to get my hands on the young reader’s version.
The Hiding Place is the story of Corrie Ten Boom’s journey through the Nazi occupation of her home country. Along with her family, she aided many people in escape and protection. Once this was discovered, she was relocated to a concentration camp. She managed to survive, and The Hiding Place is an eloquent recounting of what she experienced and what she was thinking and feeling.
This book is one that cannot be lost through history. Everyone should read this book. Each chapter is packed full of amazing statements from Corrie’s father and her own revelations about God, love, and others. Her writing style pulls the reader into her world and her experiences.
The young reader’s version is perfect for ages 9-12. There are several sketched pictures in each chapter which is perfect for helping the reader visualize what is happening. The chapters are short enough to be easily manageable for children.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. I have received a complementary copy of this book from Chosen Books.
