The Imagination Station: The Redcoats Are Coming
Marianne Hering and Nancy L Sanders
Cousins Patrick and Beth are excited to be going on vacation to Boston with their grandmother to learn all about the history there, so excited in fact that they run over to tell their friend, Mr. Whitacre. After hearing their news, Mr. Whitacre tells them has has something they’d probably like to see, a Bible from the Revolutionary War. As they flip through the pages, something falls out. They discover it’s a letter to Paul Revere – a letter that was never delivered! When they start to ask Mr. Whitacre questions about the letter and why it was never delivered, he decides to send them back in time via the Imagination Station to accomplish the task themselves. Patrick and Beth find themselves in Concord, Massachusetts in 1775 where they encounter history in a way they’d never expected. They know they have a mission, but they find that accomplishing it isn’t going to be easy. The letter goes missing at one point and they’re accused of being spies. This mission just might be the hardest thing they ever do.
This is book number 13 in the Imagination Station series, each of the 13 books takes the characters, and readers, on an awesome adventure through a different time in history. I really enjoy reading these books with my kids, they’re entertaining and fun while also being educational. It’s always fun to imagine yourself right there with the characters at some pivotal moment in history. Imagination Station books are easy to read, adventurous and teach kids more about God while they learn about history, too. I especially liked reading The Redcoats Are Coming because it talks about how our nation was formed and what its ideals are based on. I look forward to incorporating more of these books into our history lessons at home.
