I am excited to introduce you to a great new book series called the Imagination Station series. Do you recognize “Imagination Station?” Yes, it’s the time machine from Adventures in Odyssey! These books are historical fiction using the tool of the Imagination Station to send Patrick and Beth, cousins, to different past historical time periods. It’s described as a Christian version of Magic Tree House. We were given a set of the books and enjoyed reading books 5 and 6 together as a family. My three oldest kids read the first four books on their own as well.
We will be having our first Giveaway here at I Choose Joy! I have a set of all six books to give to someone with a U.S. or Canadian address! All you have to do is leave a comment. I’ll be blogging about the books Monday through Friday this week, so you can leave a comment each day–a total of five entries! The winner will be chosen randomly and announced next Monday, November 14.
Below is my review of the books. Join me tomorrow as I’ll be sharing more about the authors and a special Q and A with one of them!
I love to use historical fiction in our history studies. We read a history text as well, but stories are so much more memorable and really help the kids understand the times better. So, I was very excited to find the Imagination Station book series! They are written by some of the same authors who write the Adventure in Odyssey radio dramas, and are from a Christian perspective. One unique thing about these books is the age range they are written for: ages 7 and up/ early readers. I rarely find books that my younger readers can read by themselves. These were perfect for my 7 and 9 year olds! The stories are exciting, the words easy to read, and the chapters short. And, yet, they are reading a “chapter book” by themselves! I’m looking forward to more of these books so we can explore many more time periods and people of history! See the website theimaginationstation.com to find lots more information such as family activites, devotional, parents page, vocabulary lists, etc.
