Raising Healthy Kids in my opinion also means raising kids to enjoy reading. This may seem like a difficult task at first if you don't have children who love to read, but the end result of nurturing a love for reading is well worth it. Often times in our house, there is a slight moan when I tell the boys to get their books out. It is just a natural resistance, but after they get them out, I'm often the one faced with the difficult task of getting them to put the books down! I'll take this problem any day, wouldn't you?
Since we started to home educate almost four years ago, their love for reading has grown and grown. They're really into series books and books that build upon themselves. My job as a parent and educator has been to find them quality books. This can be a tricky task in today's time, but it can be done and classics are sometimes easy to find at the library. I'll save those ideas for another day though. For now, I'd like to introduce you to one of our contributing writers, Lynne Bellaire.
Lynne's son has a crazy love for reading and has taken the time to review the entire Imagination Station Series books 1-6 for you by Brock Eastman, Marianne Hering, Paul McCusker, and Marshall Younger. Please help me in sending her son a warm welcome.
My son recently read the first six books in The Imagination Station series and he could not put the books down. When I asked him what was so great about them, he told me that he felt like a part of the story and loved traveling to far away places. His excitement grew with each book and couldn’t wait to start the next.
In the books he said he learned about The Vikings, Rome, China, England and the knights, David and Goliath and finally about the Pilgrims and Indians using the Imagination Station to travel through time. There was a simple history lesson in each book that I didn’t have to prepare for him and that he didn’t realize he was getting. He stated that there was action in every chapter so you he had to finish the book before he could fall asleep at night. I would recommend starting them early enough in the day to finish since we had several late nights because he just couldn’t put the books down. - Lynne Bellaire
How awesome is that! This series is a great start to nurturing a love for reading. I would say all of these books are appropriate reading for ages 7 and older. If your family has been a fan of the Adventures in Odyssey, we think you'll really enjoy these books too.
I'm very excited to share with you that we are giving away the whole series books 1-6 to one lucky Vintage Indie reader!
