Children's Fiction

The Augustine Institute has launched a series of chapter books called "The Adventures of Nick and Sam." Based in the Colorado town of Hope Springs, the stories follow 8 year-old twins Nick and Sam Perry, as they encounter the challenges of everyday life and faith.  Like starting at a new school or being in a Christmas pageant.  And getting into plenty of scrapes!
