Product Description

Join cousins Patrick and Beth as they travel back in time to the final battle of the American Revolution at Yorktown, Virginia. They must sneak through the trenches and race across battlefields to warn General George Washington about a dangerous spy. The spy is stealing his secret plans and giving them to the British. Cannons roar and the ground shakes as the struggle reaches a climax. Washington's ragtag soldiers are up against the most powerful army in the world. Will Patrick and Beth witness the American Revolution come to an end? Or will they be caught in a dangerous trap they can't escape?

    Just like the other Imagination Station books, this one is awesome! This is the 3rd in a sub-series revolving around the Revolutionary War. We read this book as part of a homeschool unit study on the American Revolution. Like the other Imagination Station books, this had all of my kids (ages 6, 9, and 10) on the edge of their seats--I read this series aloud to my 6 year old while my 9 and 10 year olds read them silently (mainly b/c they can't wait to see what happens next!) My oldest daughter devoured this book in one day and she can't wait to read the next one! Every time one of these books come in the mail, it's cause for celebration at our house!

    Surprise at Yorktown, number 15 in Focus on the Familys childrens series The Imagination Station, provides children with an exciting, fast-paced look at famous historical events like the American Revolution. This particular book focuses on the battle of Yorktown, along with British General Cornwall and George Washington. My seven-year-old loved it and plans to read the rest of the series.

    While its definitely historical fiction and I have to make sure my son understands that many of the events and characters are fictional, the book still gives readers a glimpse of what it might have been like to live in the time period of the battle of Yorktown in 1781. Its a perfect series for a history buff and nonfiction lover like my son because its interesting enough and historical enough to keep him interested. Add the idea of kids traveling back in time to be eyewitnesses to historical events and youve got a real winner!

    Best of all, knowing that the series is from Focus on the Family gives me peace of mind because I dont have to worry about any inappropriate content that is present in many secular childrens novels today.

    Theres also a website, theimaginationstaton.com, that plays host to fun facts, information about upcoming books and more.

    This series is great for independent young readers, but theyd also be perfect for family read alouds.

    * Note: I received a copy of the book from Tyndale Blog Network for this review. However, the opinions expressed are my own.

    ** "Now America needed God's help to bring the war to an end." **

    Cousins Beth and Patrick have visited the Revolutionary War era a couple of times via Mr. Whittaker's Imagination Station machine, but they have yet to meet George Washington. So Whit sends them on another adventure with special gifts - a fife for Beth and a handkerchief for Patrick.

    However, when they arrive the cousins find themselves on the wrong side of the battle - the British side! After hearing a plan by General Cornwallis, "one of Washington's greatest enemies," to fake a surrender and then escape, Beth and Patrick become more determined than ever to find General Washington. But first they have to figure out how to get out from under the watchful eye of the British.

    Will Beth and Patrick ever meet George Washington? Will they have a part in the Battle at Yorktown? And why did Whit give them a fife and handkerchief to use on their adventure?

    "Surprise at Yorktown" is a fast-paced, well-written fictional story set during an historical event. Beth and Patrick are endearing characters who offer lessons on loyalty, turning to God in times of trouble and fighting for a worthy cause. This story reiterates the power of prayer in a big way.

    The "Imagination Station" series from Focus on the Family and Adventures in Odyssey are recommended for children ages 7 and up, but children of all ages will enjoy this fun series. They are a great resource for learning history in a fun and entertaining manner, and include many amazing illustrations throughout the book.

    Five stars out of five.
