I was first introduced to the new Imagination Station book series in April during my Birthday Bash. My 9yr. old daughter has loved these books! So when the next two books showed up in the mail, she couldn’t wait to start reading—and that’s saying something for this particular child of mine. 🙂
Book three in the Imagination Station series is Peril in the Palace. In this book, the Imagination machine takes cousins Beth and Patrick back to China during the reign of Kublai Khan. They meet up with Marco Polo and end up face to face with Kublai Kahn, who doesn’t appreciate their gifts nor their Christian message. The cousins are locked up with no way to escape. How will they ever find that golden tablet needed to help Albert?
Book 4 brings the cousins to 15th century England where they finally meet Albert—the person they are trying to rescue. Set during the War of the Roses in England, Revenge of the Red Knight will teach readers about the Crusades, the integrity of knights and the vows they took, and why men would choose to risk their lives to fight for Christianity.
The Imagination Station series is geared toward kids 7yrs. and up. The series features the virtual reality device called The Imagination Stations. Only Mr. Whittaker knows how this machine works, but by pushing a button, it launches users back in to time. Each book contains historical facts and Christian truths. The series is written by Paul McCusker and Marianne Hering.
One fun component of the books is solving the riddle at the end of the book. By solving, you get a secret code to add on the website which unlocks a freebie. These books are a great fit for children just getting into chapter books, make a good read-aloud for those a little younger, and are a nice supplement to history studies.
