KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A fun trip into history!June 26, 2014KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Secret of the Prince's Tomb is the 7th book in The Adventures in Odyssey Imagination Station series. The series follows the adventures of cousins Patrick and Beth as they travel through history. In this story, they travel to ancient Egypt and encounter the Hebrew people as they enter into slavery to the Pharaoh. The lesson they learn is "It's easy for people to put their hope in the wrong thing when things go bad. Putting our hope in the right thing when times are bad is what counts. God wants me to have hope in Him, not it what happens to me." What a great lesson for all of us!
I thought this a wonderful story for the targeted age group, age 7 and up. At the end of the book is a secret word puzzle in which you can figure out the secret word and then open up a special page on TheImaginationStation.com page. That page also includes a family devotional, parent's page and vocabulary list for each book. The book has large spacious print for the emerging reader and nice black and white drawings every couple of chapters.
This book is very reminiscent of the Magic Tree House books my children loved when they were younger, but with a Christian focus. I would have loved for them to read these at that age. I shall remember this series when there are grandchildren!

This one has quite a bit of mystery and my kids were on the edge of their seats half the time. They couldn't wait to see what happened next and, I have to admit, either could I. All of us learned quite a bit more about Egyptian culture and made some exciting discoveries about the biblical Joseph. Highly recommend!!
eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful SeriesJune 21, 2014eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This story has surprises, hope, and exotic places to help the kids learn. I enjoy the creative way the stories are retold. Young readers will be intrigued and inspired. In this story, the kids learn several lessons, including how comfortable we are in our times compared to ancient times. They also have a responsible assignment to complete. It is fun to guess the identity of the Prince before it is revealed. This book can be read on its own, because it does not depend on any earlier books in the Imagination Station series.

homeschooling fourLake Mills, WIAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5He's enamored with these books!March 28, 2013homeschooling fourLake Mills, WIAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 9 year old son has been a fine reader, but he hasn't shared my love for getting in a book and experiencing it... until now! Being an avid listener of the Odyssey series, I suspected that he'd enjoy the books, and he has, from the first page through to the end. Like me, he began reading in bed before falling asleep... when the Secret of the Prince's Tomb got a little 'scary,' he began reading it first thing in the morning. He wants all of the books!
