The Redcoats Are Coming! Focus on the Family's Imagination Station Book #13 by Marianne Hering and Nancy I. Sanders
This series puts the long-running and very popular Focus in the Family's Adventures in Odyssey into books for young children. This particular book is about American history, specifically Paul Revere. What a great way to learn about our country's history in a fun, exciting format! Patrick and Beth visit history through the "Imagination Station" to assist Paul Revere in warning the people that the British were coming during the outbreak of the Revolutionary war. They meet Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and John Hancock and play a hand in the events of history.
This book is well written and illustrated and at a level for understanding of young elementary aged children. They offer a download for a nominal fee of a curriculum to go with the story for homeschoolers and Christian schools. This is my preferred method of teaching history to my elementary aged granddaughter. She is a visual, hands-on learner and has loved Adventures in Odyssey all her life. She is enjoying this book along with another current related story for children that is making the rounds right now. I am so thrilled to have this resource available to make history fun to learn.
I received my copy of this book from Tyndale for review. I received no compensation for my review and all opinions are my own.
