I’m always looking for fun educational reading for my kids, and one place that I am always pleased with is the Adventures In Odyssey series! I did a review awhile back, you can read it here, and they’ve released two new books in the Imagination Station adventure series!
Imagination Station Book #8 | Battle for Cannibal Island – $4.49 (Also available as an eBook!)
Summary: It’s 1852 and cousins Patrick and Beth sail to Fiji on the HMS Calliope under the command of Captain James E. Home. They arrive at the islands to find that the Christian Fijians are at war with the non-Christian Fijians. Missionary James Calvert is trying to make peace and suggests that the captain allow peace negotiations on board the British vessel. Patrick and Beth learn about sacrificial living when they observe Calvert’s determination to live on Fiji despite the dangers and impoverished conditions and that he is willing to risk his life to live as Jesus would.
Imagination Station Books #9 | Escape to the Hiding Place – $4.49 (Also available as an eBook!)
Summary: Patrick and Beth arrive in World War II Holland in the farm country. They must smuggle a baby (by bicycle) into the capable hands of Corrie ten Boom at her home in Haarlem. Along the way they hide from Nazi soldiers, meet a Russian surgeon forced into service by the Germans, and encourage two Jewish children who haven’t been outside in over three years. The children learn to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of everyday people who helped the Jews

Also, our son loves to read the Magic Treehouse Book, we’ve never heard of this set but it sounds like they are similar to our son’s favorite books so I would love the opportunity to try them since we have read and reread the entire Magic Treehouse books collection. I would especially like to introduce him to the story of the Hiding Place’s story in a more appropriate child friendly context. This would be a great chance! Thanks for passing on information about the series and for offering the giveaway.
I’m sure my kids would absolutely love these books! Thanks for the giveaway!
