Gladys Aylward (Gutsy Girls: Strong Christian Women Who Impacted the World #1) by Amy L. Sullivan & illustrated by Beverly Ann Wines
About the Book
Girls need heroes. Why not introduce them to women who are smart, bold, courageous, and who love Jesus? —Amy L. Sullivan
Book One in the Gutsy Girls: Strong Christian Women Who Impacted the World series introduces readers to Gladys Aylward, the ultimate gutsy girl. Gladys wanted to tell the people of China about Jesus, but others said she was “too old” and “not smart” and that China was “far too dangerous.” Gladys ignored these words and set out on an adventure.
Young readers are invited to jump aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway and experience Gladys’ story, which is told with engaging text and stunning illustrations.
