Attack at the Arena is the second book of the Imagination Station series. I read this book with my niece and nephew and not only did they love it, but I felt good about it because it uses a captivating story to teach sound Biblical values. In this book, Mr. Whittaker and cousins Beth and Patrick get a letter from the Imagination Station. This time, they go to ancient Rome including the arena to find the missing silver cup belonging to a monk. This book is full of adventure that will appeal to young readers and valuable lessons that Christian parents will want their children taken into heart. I also appreciated the many facts of ancient Rome because it gave my niece and nephew an appreciation for what they have and how they live. Once again, Focus on the Family provides a great tool for parents to provide to their children that will impart valuable Christian principles to its users.

This is a great book to help introduce yoru children to persecution. I can't recommend these books highly enough!
This book is about Patrick and Beth's second mission to save Albert. In this story Patrick and Beth go to Ancient Rome. I like this book because it has Roman History and facts. My favorite part is where Aldric throws Patrick to the beam holding the nets to protect the emperor. I think it's a good book for kids between ages 8-11. Joshua, age 10
