If you want fun, exciting, adventurous books for your kids, Focus on the Family Imagination Station books are IT!
I read Battle for Cannibal Island to my kids on a long car trip we took. They were so caught up in the story, they did not want to quit reading! It took up about an hour and a half to two hours of our trip. I had to stop occasionally to get a drink, and they kept saying "Read more!"
I received both of these books to review from the Tyndale Blog Network. These books are wonderful for kids, and to help teach values and build character in their lives. Not only do these stories have adventure, but also facts about true stories like the missionary John Calvert and infomation on the Nazi's and WWII. Great educational material.
