n 1940, the Germans invaded the Netherlands, and Corrie ten Boom and her family helped to hide as many Jewish people as possible. They even had a secret room built in her bedroom.
Corrie and her sister were caught by the German army and sent to a concentration camp, where God made sure they always had a Bible to read and plenty of opportunities to share the good news about Jesus.
Corrie’s trust in God gave her the strength to go on until the war ended. From then on, Corrie talked about her life to big crowds, saying, “There’s no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still".
Children will enjoy this beautifully illustrated children's biography of Corrie ten Boom, who saved hundreds of Jewish people during World War 2.
Can be read to young children aged 4-5, and read by children aged 6 plus.

As a parent, I want my children to be shaped and influenced by the steadfast lives of other Christians. The "Do Great Things for God" series by Laura Caputo-Wickham is a wonderful introduction to faithful women who courageously served the Lord in a variety of ways. These stories teach as they inspire, and your children will be blessed to learn about Betsey Stockton’s missionary dream and Corrie Ten Boom’s secret room.
