Problems in Plymouth is another great book in the Imagination Station series and this time Beth and Patrick venture to 1621 at Plymouth Plantation. At Plymouth, they meet Miles Standish, William Bradford, and Indian Chief Massasoit during a time where there is unrest between the Indians and Pilgrims. The unrest is made worse when Hugh, the archenemy, steals a musket causing the Pilgrims to believe the Indians stole them with war in their minds. Beth and Patrick race against the clock to catch Hugh before he can change history and to prevent a war from occurring between the Pilgrims and Indians.
These are the best kids books ever! This one follows Patrick and Beth as they go back into the Imagination Station. They are looking for a time-traveling villain this time. They go back to the time when the Pilgrims celebrated their first Thanksgiving. They also encounter the Pilgrims meeting the Indians for the first time. These stories really bring alive history to children and adults alike. I would recommend this book to especially children but also to adults. It's a very easy read and helps make history a little easier to understand.
Problems in Plymouth is book number 6 in The Imagination Station Series which features Mr. Whittaker and his invention from Adventures in Odyssey. Patrick and Beth, cousins, are off on another adventure and will hopefully stop Hugh and his escapades. This time they end up in Plymouth just before the first Thanksgiving. But when things start to seem a bit fishy Patrick and Beth know that Hugh is up to no good. Can they stop him in time and get this all straightened out?
This book series is a fabulous substitute for the hugely popular Magic Treehouse books. If you are looking for something that can help your kids learn about history but from a Biblical perspective and without the magic this is the series for you. My 9 year old loves them but they are more at a 1st-2nd grade reading level. I highly recommend getting this whole series for your children.
In Problems in Plymouth, Beth and Patrick team up again to go back in time to the colony of Plymouth. They are in search of the troublemaker, Hugh. They wind up finding themselves in the middle of a squabble between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims. I found this story to be interesting and is a fun way to teach my children the early history of the United States. I'm really loving the Imagination Station series.
In Problems in Plymouth Patrick and Beth are successful in their quest to find Hugh and return him to his own time. The Imagination Station Books allow kids to have an entertaining story while at the same time getting a glimpse into real life history and learning important life lessons.
