    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...

    Nice kids' story about a close family and how they handle life's bumps. They talk out disagreements, they firmly and compassionately deal with sin, they value each other, they pray. The main problem they have to go through in this story is having to move to a different state, saying go...

    "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, including social and academic struggles and successes, friendships, bullies, balancing hobbies and scho...

    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...

    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...

    Karen Kingsbury is one of my mother's favorite authors. And even though all her books are on the shelves here, I personally haven't really read one of them. I'm not much of a contemporary reader and therefore the books never really spoke to me. But, when my mom bought this Children's b...

    Best Family Ever By Karen Kingsbury and Tyler Russell I was given the opportunity to read an ARC of this book and below is my honest own opinion. Best Family Ever ministers to the hearts of young children everywhere.  Karen and Tyler gives us experiences of the Baxter children...

    Brooke is the perfect older child, Kari is the star soccer player, and Ashley an inspiring artist. There is nothing that can separate these Baxter sisters. They are always reminded by their parents that they will always be each other's Best Friends, but as the girls get older there are...

    I've read and enjoyed several of Karen Kingbury's adult fiction books, so I was excited to read this, as I thought it might be good to recommend to my fifth graders (I teach at a Christian school). Ugh. I did not enjoy this one at all. It was hokey and corny and too idealistic. As some...

    Best Family Ever was written for children but if you're a Karen Kingsbury fan and you have read all of the Baxter books, then you will want to read this book. Then let your children or a neighbor's child read it. Best Family Ever tells the story of the Baxters as children. Watch them b...

    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...

    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 ...

    I love this book and I think that it will inspire many other young boys and girls to only be themselves and not try to be like any else. It is a great story and it?s not only exciting but it is also educational. I?m sure that after reading this book many people will wish that they ...

    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...
