You know a series has caught the attention of your kids when a new book comes in the house and your oldest son – who is age 11 by the way – grabs it and reads it within two hours and thirty minutes.  That’s how good The Imagination Station books are for him.   Considering that the series is geared  for kids 7 and up and more specifically for kids in grades 2 and 3, knowing that my oldest likes them even if he is in grade 6 means a lot to me.   As soon as he had finished the book he asked when I would received the next one.  
This specific title will bring the cousins, Patrick and Beth, in Egypt and will make them realize the life style of slaves in Egypt.   Actually, they will have to bring back the hope in a group of people bound to slavery and doing so they will enter an ancient burial vault and discover a special mummy.   Who is this person buried there?   I won’t reveal the secret of the tomb but it was a very important person from the past.
Needless to say, this book helps kids to live the history has it happened and will hopefully pick their curiosity to the point that they would like to know more about this particular period of time. 
And to top it off, at the end of the book you can solve a secret word puzzle.  Once you have found the word, you are directed to the website – – where you can download an episode of the Adventures in Odyssey.   Since my kids are quite fond of the series, this is a bonus treat for us – particularly when we are driving to swimming lessons! 
I highly recommend The Imagination Station series as it brings history to life for your kids.    It is a great series to read-aloud when you have multiple children as well.  
The Imagination Station 7 – Secret of the Prince’s Tomb is available at your favorite bookstore, even
