Imagination Station Giveaway

I love when my girls get excited over books. We just finished reading the Imagination Station book 8 & 9. The very day they came in the mail the girls wanted to stop what they were doing to read them. They are written for children ages 7 and up, and they are perfect for my 7 year old. Even though my 10 & 11 year old have a much higher reading level they still love the history and adventure. 
 
The Imagination Station allows us to follow Patrick and his cousin Beth on adventures through time. In the Battle for Cannibal Island Patrick is upset that his mom is making him miss his soccer game to attend his grandmothers birthday party. While hanging out in the Imagination Station he pushes some buttons and accidentally sends Beth and himself to Fiji in the 1850s. Patrick and Beth find themselves aboard a ship where they get separated. Patrick must fight off escaped convicts, then falls overboard, and has to deal with a terrible storm from a small boat and eventually lands on the island with cannibals. Beth is discovered hiding in the rescue boat with missionary James Calvert. James' real motive for going to the island is to find the king of the cannibals and tell him about the Bible. Will Beth find Patrick and get off the island safely.
 
The Battle for Cannibal Island was written by Marianne Hering and Wayne Thomas Batson and illustrated by David Hohn. This 5 1/2"X8" softcover book was released this month and retails for $4.99.

Patrick is at it again in Escape to the Hiding Place, he is upset because he spent time studying to take the Red Cross baby sitting class with his cousin Beth just to find out they are too young. Discouraged that they are too young to be of any help Mr. Whitaker sends them on a trip in the Imagination Station to Holland during World War Two. They end up hiding from the Germans on a farm with the Dutch Resistance. Patrick and Beth are given a secret mission of hiding and smuggling a Jewish baby to her mother. Will the mother still be in hiding when they get there or will the Germans find her first.

Escape to the Hiding Place was written by Mariann Hering and Marshal Younger and illustrated by David Hohn. This 5 1/2"X8" softcover book was released this month and retails for $4.99.
