Children's Book Review~Captured on the High Seas
The Imagination Station book series is a Focus on The Family resource, published by Tyndale Publishing. Captured on the High Seas is the 14th book in the series. It is 130 pages long, with black and white illustrations. At the back of the book are puzzles and questions to answer about the story.
In Captured on the High Seas, cousins Patrick and Beth find themselves at sea on an American ship in the year 1781. They make friends with a 15-year-old boy named James. While at sea, they run into many problems, including a fight with the British! They also have lots of adventure, and learn about our history.
My kids all loved The Magic Treehouse series, so I was excited to discover the Imagination Station series as they are similar in many ways. I love that I don't have to worry about the content my kids are reading-these are clean, wholesome stories. Also, they appeal to boys and girls alike. Stories like Captured on the High Seas and the entire Imagination Station series are the kind of books that catch a child's attention at such a critical stage, and makes them become lifelong readers! I look forward to having my 11-year-old son read more of the series. I wish Imagination Station books were around when my now adult kids were young! They would have devoured them!
