Review: Imagination Station Series
Finding age appropriate books for my daughter has been a real mission for me. There is so much out there but there but there are concerns. Is it on her reading level, is the content appropriate, will it keep her interest?
I am so excited to tell you about the Imagination Station Series. Of all the books we have read these have just been so fun! My daughter has been intimidated with chapter books as she is just on the fringe of readers and chapter books. She actually cried the first time I told her to pick up Voyage with Vikings. I gave her 10 minutes to calm down and when I got back she told me she was going to finish the book in one day! It actually took her three but she was so excited about the book that I had to make her put it down! She had the same reaction to the other books in the series!
So what about content? Well, each book is historically and Biblically based. While there is creative license in the books they are safe and based on truth. Each book follows two children who travel back in time and experience past events. Because they are published by Focus on the Family' Adventures in Odyssey you can be confident that the content in the books is safe! Best of all the books have an activity page, parent page, vocabulary list, devotion suggestion, and a fun secret word that can be entered on the website for a special surprise!
As of right now there are seven books out. We reviewed the first six and enjoyed them all. They run around $4.50 $4.99 depending on which and where you purchase them and are age appropriate for 7 and up.
These are definitely a must on your child's pleasure reading list!
Disclaimer: I was given a copy of the first 6 books in exchange for an honest review. This post is 100% my opinion.
