    The story of David and Goliath comes to life when Patrick and Beth journey to the Holy Land in the Imagination Station. They are searching for Hugh and their goal is to return him to his own time period but will they be successful?

    The Imagination Station books are an excellent way for kids to have an entertaining read while at the same time learning about a Bible Story or history events.

    These books reflect the Bible stories in a new way. Youngsters will enjoy the action while learning about history as seen by two children. I thought the shepherd was a realistic and likeable character. This is very well done.

    To be perfectly honest, this is what I expected when I heard about these Imagination Station books. A novelized version of Superbook or The Flying House. (Google those, if you need to.) Essentially, time travel, but to places and events from the Bible. I'm fine with that and there's absolutely nothing wrong with this installment, but I'm kind of glad that more of history is covered by the series. I guess it kind of lends more credulity to the books and the Bible.

    Now, the gist of the book. Beth and Patrick find themselves on yet another quest and this time, they're chasing a moving target. The Imagination Station drops them off in the world of a shepherd boy named David and there is no shortage of adventure. Bear attacks, secret missions, and more action than you can sling a rock at, Showdown with a Shepherd is another solid addition to the growing catalog of this young reader's series.

    Another quick read and enjoyable story for younger readers and fans of Magic Tree House or Secrets of Droon books who are looking for (or at least don't mind) a Christian twist.

    A Biblical adventure in the Imagination Station.

    Patrick and Beth are on a mission to find the ring stolen by Hugh and return him to his proper time. When they step out of the Imagination Station Beth and Patrick are flung into a full blown adventure!

    I think that this particular novel in the series was especially cool because Beth and Patrick traveled back to Bible times, during the time when David faced the giant. What I love about these books is that they are so children friendly with big print and managable words, that are easy for young readers to understand. But not only that, they contain historic facts interwoven with the storyline, plus a great lesson about courage and faith.

    There's plenty of action in these short books, so don't let the size fool you. These books are perfect for kids who are just starting to read on their own, that age when it's hard to find a book that will engage and is at the appropriate reading level.

    Overall a series that I highly recommend to children to read on their own or to have their parents read to them :)

    Showdown with the Shepherd, book five in the Imagination Station series By Marianne Hering and Brock Eastman was a great book! The series follows cousins Patrick and Beth in their various adventures in the imagination station. Adventures in Odyssey lover will fall in love with these books. The series is written for younger readers but people of all ages will love the christian values it teaches and enjoy the story.
