Woot! Guess what arrived in the mailbox today?
The next two books in one of our family’s favorite series: Books 8 and 9 of the Imagination Station series! We already started reading book 8 at dinner tonight!
If you’re looking for a good read-aloud for your children, I highly recommend these books. Our children have been riveted and on the edge of their seats through each and every chapter. In fact, we usually read at least five chapters chapters at a time because I can’t bear to say no to their begging for me to read more!
Here’s a little peek into books 8 and 9:
Book #8: Battle for Cannibal Island
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.
Book #9: Escape to the Hiding Place
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 soliders, 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.
