    A bit on the overly sweet side, but cute. Fun to see familiar characters as children. Would an actual child enjoy this book? Meh. ...

    E ARC from Netgalley The Baxter family lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where the father is a doctor. Brooke is the oldest, and is "perfect" and responsible. Kari is good at school but not as good at soccer. Ashley is very flighty and would rather draw than do her math. The two younges...

    I just love this book and I am looking forward to reading more about the Baxter Family Children. This is a good clean story about the Baxter kids, a story about love, family, forgiveness, and how to be yourself. There are a few mentions of God and a few small prayers which flow smoothl...

    This is such a wonderful book for people of all ages, but especially for kids ages 8-12, grades 3-7. "Best Family Ever" is packed full of wonderful life lessons and its characters are incredibly relatable. The Baxter kids in this book experience all sorts of normal childhood things, in...

    There is much to love about this Baxter family story which focuses on the five Baxter children. The older three girls (Brooke, Kari and Ashley) are given their own chapters with Ashley having the bulk of them. I am assuming that the other girls might get more focus in future books in t...

    Enchanting book Karen and Tyler have written a book that will have you laughing, and crying. Seeing the Baxter children growing up learning to always lean on each others. Great book for adults who love the Baxter family and for kids to introduce them to a loving family. ...

    This latest book from Karen Kingsbury - and her son, Tyler - is a wonderful book that targets middle grade readers but is a book for any age. This book focuses on the popular Baxter family but it is a"prequel" of sorts - it focuses on when the Baxter siblings are young children. It sho...

    I'm thrilled that Karen and Tyler are writing chapter books for children. I've always loved how Karen Kingsbury writes books about everyday situations and includes faith, ways to face life's challenges with faith, prayer and family. She and her son, Tyler are now doing the same for kid...

    I liked this very much. I felt there was a sickly sweet section towards the beginning, and was almost relieved when "problems" began to crop up. Don't know as a parent if I could have let Ashley go as long as she did without intervention. ...

    This is the first book in a series written by Karen & her son, Tyler, about the Boxters as children. The reading age is geared toward children around ages 9-12. I'd say that this book may be more appealing to young girls, rather than boys, as it doesn't talk that much about the boy...

    Karen Kingsbury and her son, Tyler Russell, went above and beyond with this wonderful book. I received and read it all in one day. I?m so excited for the next one with the Baxter clan growing up. I will leave all of my Karen Kingsbury books to my future grandchildren because I believ...

    This takes place in Michigan and South Carolina from Valentine's Day through the end of the school year. Two of the four children tell the story, which focuses on the upcoming move to Indiana. There is a lot of focus put on school and grades. Also, faith and family and self are a part ...

    The audience for this book is white upper middle class Christian families who are completely out of touch with the struggles of the working class. It?s written in a way that makes me think the authors haven?t actually spoken to a fourth grade child maybe ever? ...

    I have read all the Baxter books that Karen wrote, and once got to see her at a conference where she read one of her children's books. Until then, I didn't know she had written children's books. I was recently having to stop reading a book that became yucky unexpectedly and was so, so ...

    My 8 year old son loves it. I read a chapter or two to him before bed and he never wanted me to put it down. It really held his attention. Coincidentally, we read the part about them vacationing at a beach right before we went to the beach for the first time for a vacation. There was a...

    I am so in love with the Baxter family. It was nice to read about Brooke, Kari, Ashley, Erin and Luke as children. The last couple chapters brought back memories of my childhood. I felt the same way Ashley felt. Ashley holds an extra special place in my heart. Can?t wait to read more...

    I am a long time reader of Karen Kingsbury books. While this book is geared towards a younger audience, I can honestly say I enjoyed it just as much as her adult Christian fiction. The Baxter family has always been "my family" and to read about their growing up years, it just brings it...

    I have read every Baxter book to date. I loved Brook, Kari, Erin, Ashley, and Luke as adults. I was skeptical at first. However, Karen and Tyler have captivated me with the young Baxters. Best Family Ever makes me remember my own childhood days. This is the Baxters on a whole other l...

    Excellent book. I am a huge Karen Kingsbury fan so to go back in time and read about the Baxter children growing up was neat. But I also believe this is great for kids to read as it shows how to handle some of life's situations as they come up. Would recommend! ...
