It all starts at Whit's End Soda Shop plus. Plus what? Well, there is a radio studio, a theater, a library, a model train, and a Bible room – but this adventure doesn't start in any of those places. This adventure starts in The Imagination Station. Better than a video game ever imagined, Whit's Imagination Station has a computer that can do just about anything. It also has a time machine. Dressing them appropriately, Whit sticks Beth and Patrick in this time machine and they go off to rescue a very mysterious Albert by finding a Viking sunstone. Danger and adventures galore meet the two as they meet Erik the Red and Leif Erikson, and search for that sunstone. Thieves, tidal waves, spears, and bolted door mysteries fill Beth and Patrick's days until they finally make it back to Whit's End. Based very firmly on history, Bible morals (early Christians as well as Vikings are in this story), and the teaching of reading skills, this book closes with some puzzles drawn from the story.

Focus on the Family's Adventures in Odyssey presents this new series, The Imagination Station. Voyage with the Vikings is book 1 of this series. Not only fun reading, this book will fit into the history studied in grades levels 1-7. It is written to engage and enhance the literary skills of ages 7 and up. Prolific writer on articles and books for young people, Marianne Hering knows well how to engage young readers. Award winning author and creator of the Father Gilbert Mysteries, Paul McCosker adds his know-how to this story. Voyage with the Vikings is a chapter book which will fit well into the reading curriculum for both home-schoolers and classrooms. The words will challenge 7-year-olds, but the story interest will keep them engaged in the reading. Older students will enjoy reading this and be able to use activities from Voyage with the Vikings such as book discussions, journaling, and story mapping. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This is a great start off book for the Imagination Station series! Patrick and Beth go to the time of Vikings! Protected by the ruler's son Leif, they must not be found alone or Leif's father Eric the Red will make them his slaves! My favorite part is where Beth beats Eric the Red at a game of chess. Beth and Patrick learn to show kindness to your enemies. Besides all of this Leif trades for Beth's chess set a sunstone. This will help Albert to be saved from being locked in Lord Darkthorn's tower.

    Last year, purchased this book originally for my 3rd grader. She loved reading it and has re-read it a couple of times since then. Just finished reading this book aloud to my 1st grader and we both really enjoyed it. Story moves along nicely. There is mystery, action and some things that get you to talk about living out faith yet not overly done. I also like the tie-in to history. At end of book, after solving a word puzzle, you get a link to a website that is fabulous. It gives you more historical info, tips for parents, a wonderful devotional related to a faith topic hinted at in the story. These additional resources simply add to the value and quality of the book.

    We have only read the first in this series, but we are looking forward to more. I like that they are enjoyable enough for a stronger reader to have a relaxed read and still benefit from reading it. It's a nice look at history while retaining a Christian world view. I like examples for our children to follow that say 'this how a Christian should handle this situation'. There are so many poor worldly examples bombarding them every day.

    I decided to read this to my kids while we were on vacation. My youngest is 7 and wasn't excited about it since there were no pictures but after the second chapter both boys were asking each night to read more.

    My son read this book a few months ago and couldn't put it down. I read it last night to get an idea of what he was reading. It takes the story of Mr. Whittaker and the Imagination Station from Adventures in Odyssey to the next level. The book follows two cousins, Beth and Patrick on their own adventure in the Imagination Station back to the time of the Vikings. They meet Erik the Red and his son Leif Eriksson, learn a little about the Vikings and learn that Christians did not have an easy life. The end of the story led into the next book which we can't wait to read.
