4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not my favorite -WWII buff 14 Aug. 2014
By Dara Shank - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For Tyndale’s Summer Reading Challenge, they had quite a few books in the Imagination Station series, and I reviewed one of them already, which I absolutely LOVED, despite it being set in Ancient Rome! Once I found out they had a WWII themed book and it was on Amazon for less than $5, of course I bought it!
In this book aimed at first-third graders, cousins Patrick and Beth travel back to WWII Holland and join the Dutch Resistance, and ultimately smuggle a Jewish baby to Corrie ten Boom’s house. I did enjoy this book, but unfortunately not as much as I thought I would. I found certain parts unrealistic (and I thought of work-able, age-appropriate alternatives). Some parts I thought could have been better researched, but I was able to forgive this, mostly because I understand the authors are just authors, not historians. I also don’t think it’s quite for 7+, but perhaps a slightly more mature age group. Then, there is the implied historical inaccuracy in most Corrie ten Boom stories, but that’s just a pet peeve of mine.
Although there are many other Holocaust chapter books, specifically right off my head Twenty and Ten for the first-third grade age and Number the Stars that I prefer better, this book wasn’t horrible by any means, and I’m really proud of them for even tackling this subject for a young audience range and overall, recommend the series. It truly is a fantastic Christian series that introduces young kids to history. (I’m quite passionate about WWII and somewhat picky about it! That’s just me and my issues lol)
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Gets Us Right into the Action 25 Jun. 2014

This is as exciting as the rest of the series, and one of my favorites because it reflects history in a unique way. Two children have adventures in various times and places in this series. I do wonder whether 8-year-olds would have the ability to do some of these things or make these decisions, but it probably depends on their personalities. The hiding place and the people are well described, and the action is frightening and realistic. Adults may want to read this to see if it suits the kids. I was inspired to look more into history by this one and the others in the series. This series encourages Christian values in a fun way.
5.0 out of 5 stars My kids at school loved this series 14 July 2014

My kids at school loved this series. It is easy enough for struggling readers and interesting enough that many of my stronger readers went through the whole series so really good for getting kids into sharing their books without making them feel like their reading skills (or lack thereof) were obvious. Christian focus is very gentle so good for all the families.

Great story to teach kids about the holocaust and help them understand the time period. I grew up loving Adventures in Odyssey and love sharing them with the kids in my life. Not only is it a fun story but teaches them about history and God at the same time.
