Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind Reviews
Great before bed read with the Snow Leopards.
This delightful book begins with a reference section, probably very helpful in print form. The characters are introduced and common phrases translated, and we hear a brief biography of the author. You could easily skip the sections on characters and translations, as the book is told in a way that explains these as you go. However, don't miss the biography and important facts about Tanzania, as they really ground the story in its proper setting.Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind is the perfect book for car trips or family reading time, but adults will enjoy it just as much as children. Told from the author's point of view, we get a real feel for his life as a medical missionary. This doctor working in rural Africa weaves important health information and spiritual truths into stories and word pictures so that the Tanzanian people will understand. All the while, he is displaying wisdom, cultural sensitivity, and strong character. He not only faces disease, injuries, and the normal occurrences of a health clinic in this part of the world, but he also battles greed, drugs, and deception among his trusted co-workers. Paul Michael's narration was incredible. Each character had the appropriate accent, with a bit milder accent for the doctor as he told his story than when he actually speaks to other characters. I checked the christianaudio site several times to be sure the same man was reading the whole story, as it seemed to me that this MUST be a team narration. The guy is that good. Of course, I'm a bit partial to books about missionaries. My only regret with this book is that I didn't find the series when my children were younger, before we came on the field. It's inspiring, exciting, and very entertaining.At the time of this writing, christianaudio is offering the first four books of the series for $5.00 each. What a bargain!**Thank you, christianaudio, for providing me a copy of this audiobook. My opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
I read this aloud to my children, and they have been begging for me to get more books in the series to read to them. The writing isn't stellar, mostly due to the fact that it is taken from a radio series, but the story makes up for the lack of literary skill.
My kids, ranging in age from 2 to 8 years old, loved this book. They begged for a chapter each night.
This was a wonderful book! I enjoyed learning about Africa and the different diseases that are there. I also liked how the missionaries used different circumstances to point people to Christ.
