The Watcher

by Nikki Grimes, Bryan Collier

Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company


Children’s Fiction

Pub Date 09 Oct 2017 | Archive Date 09 Oct 2017

I am reviewing a copy of The Watcher through Wm. B. Eerdman’s Publishing Company and Netgalley:

In this book Nikki Grimes uses the Words of Psalm 121 to help tell the story of Jordan who lives in fear of Tanya the class bully.  Tanya is dealing with a sick Grandmother at home, and her Grandmother is the one who cares for her, but because her Grandmother is sick she finds herself hungry.

This brief children books packs a powerful punch, showing how faith, friendship and forgiveness can transform a bully into a friend.

I give The Watcher five out of five stars.

Happy Reading!
