Children's Book Review~Surprise at Yorktown
Focus on the Family and Adventures in Odyssey have released book #15 in The Imagination Station series. Surprise at Yorktown, by Marriane Hering and Nancy I. Sanders, is published by Tyndale House Publishing. The paperback is 135 pages, with black and white illustrations throughout the book. It is a perfect Elementary School age chapter book.
In this installment of the popular series, cousins Patrick and Beth continue their adventures through history. They find themselves in 1781, witnessing the Battle of Yorktown. They meet James Armistead, a courier, and find themselves escaping enemy camp, surviving cannonball attacks and storms, and must warn George Washington that the future of the country is at stake!
My son, who is 12 years old, enjoyed Surprise at Yorktown. It was full of action, which is what definitely kept his attention throughout the story! I think it is great that he is learning history while he is enjoying a book!
I received a copy of this book free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
