    Great story to teach kids about the holocaust and help them understand the time period. I grew up loving Adventures in Odyssey and love sharing them with the kids in my life. Not only is it a fun story but teaches them about history and God at the same time.

    Escape to the Hiding Place is another exciting book in the Adventures in Odyssey Imagination Station series. In this adventure, Patrick and Beth travel to Holland during World War 2. While there, they meet Corrie Ten Boom and help to smuggle a baby to her home for safe keeping. During their adventure, they are thrust into danger as they dodge Nazi soldiers, encourage Jewish children in hiding, and interact with a Russian doctor who is being forced to serve the German army. Not only does this book teach valuable Christian lessons to readers, but the story also gives readers an appreciation for the risks and courage of those who helped the Jewish people during World War 2.

    I was a little worried that the topic of WW2 and Jews trying to escape would be too much for my young kids. But the book handled it in a very good way. They introduced the kids to Corrie Ten Boom and how she helped Jews hide and escape. They also saw how the war affected the Dutch people. The story had plenty of action that was appropriate for my 4-8 yr old girls. We had some great discussion afterwards on WW2.

    This is as exciting as the rest of the series, and one of my favorites because it reflects history in a unique way. Two children have adventures in various times and places in this series. I do wonder whether 8-year-olds would have the ability to do some of these things or make these decisions, but it probably depends on their personalities. The hiding place and the people are well described, and the action is frightening and realistic. Adults may want to read this to see if it suits the kids. I was inspired to look more into history by this one and the others in the series. The series encourages Christian values in a fun way.

    This installment of the Adventures in Odyssey: Imagination Station series finds cousins Beth and Patrick at Whit's End complaining about how children can't do anything to help. Whit assures them that children can be very helpful and sends them on a trip through the imagination station to Holland during World War Two. They are sent on a mission that could endanger their very lives.

    This is a fun read. It had lots of great historical references to Nazi occupied Holland during World War Two. Included was everyone needing papers to assure their identity, a fact I wasn't aware of. It also showcased the dangers of being Jewish or sympathetic to the Jewish people. I highly recommend this book for all ages
