Voyage with the Vikings by Paul McCusker and Marianne Hering
The Imagination Station book series begins with Voyage with the Vikings. At Whit’s End, Beth and Patrick are transported by Mr. Whittaker’s invention, the Imagination Station, to Greenland circa 1000 as they search for a Viking sunstone. A mysterious note and a vanishing ring add to the excitement of this story.
Our family already loves Adventures in Odyssey, so we had high expectations for this book. Once I started it, my kids would not let me stop!! We finished it in one day! I was even able to tie in the Viking information from the story with what we had previously learned in our homeschooling. Entertainment AND learning – what a great combo! There is also a web address for more fun, informative facts. The only negative is that my reading isn’t as creative as the audio productions of Adventure in Odyssey! Our whole family would highly recommend this book to all families and are looking forward to the next book in the series, Attack at the Arena.
