By now, you probably all know that I love old-fashioned books and movies, because they have old-fashioned values in them. And I think our world needs more of that. But recently, on a Facebook group I belong to, a mom asked about MODERN adventure stories for her teenage son that are clean. It got me thinking, and I decided to do a round up of our family's favorite clean adventure stories that have been written for this generation.
Sometimes it's hard to find clean, teen adventure books. Either they are super dark, have language or scenes in them or have an anti-hero where the lines between good and evil are blurred. I think there is a time (when they are emotionally mature enough) and place for kids (with you) to learn about sensitive and difficult subject matters, but there is also a time to escape with a fun read.
Here are some of our favorite adventure books, in no particular order (affiliate links are included). You'll notice that some of these authors have written several series, so be sure to check them all out! These also make great road trip audio books for the whole family.
As I was putting this list together, I noticed that strangely, most of these books feature orphans...weird.
What adventure books does your family recommend? Comment below!
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
