- Christian Shelf-Esteem's review of AIO The Redcoats Are Coming! by Amanda on 6/19/2015
In the city of Odyssey there is an inventor named Mr. Whitaker. His most famous invention is the Imagination Station, which "like a time machine," allows anyone who steps inside to be immersed into historical events. In The Redcoats Are Coming! two children, Beth and Patrick, discover a letter addressed to Paul Revere tucked inside a Bible that dates back to the Revolutionary War. Using the Imagination Station they travel back to 1775 to deliver the letter to it's rightful owner. Over the course of the adventure these children will evade spies, meet a few of our nation's founding fathers, deliver an important message to Paul Revere, and help alert the countryside that British troops are on the move. It's fast-paced fun for adventure seekers and history enthusiasts alike.
While reading this story children will gain new insights into this time period, like how people dressed, modes of transportation, and the reasons why our forefathers took a stand for freedom. The authors also incorporate the faith of our founding fathers into the story. From the thoughts of the character Beth we read, "Christians are involved. Churches are involved. For freedom. For liberty. For America." Your child will enjoy the thrill of time travel, secret codes, and narrow escapes. This book both educates and entertains an elementary aged audience.
