The Redcoats Are Coming! (AIO Imagination Station Books) by Marianne Hering, Nancy I. Sanders

Book Description:  The first of a three-book story arc about the American Revolution, "The Redcoats Are Coming" follows Patrick and Beth as they assist the revolutionaries by waking up the sleeping citizens of 1775 Concord before the Redcoats come. In this adventure, the cousins meet Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock. They help smuggle musket balls, sound the alarm that the Redcoats are coming, and deliver a secret message to Paul Revere. Along the way they learn that most of the revolutionaries leaned on God's direction and even pastors helped in the cause.Christian parents and teachers will appreciate the historical facts as well as the biblical worldview training their kids and students will absorb. The kids will appreciate the excitement and tension of an America at war with England, and in some ways, with itself. A curriculum for Christian schools and homeschool families will be available.

My Thoughts:  The Redcoats Are Coming!  is the first book of three about the American Revolution.  Out family was excited about this "series" because first of all it's Adventures in Odyssey and secondly we are studying about the American Revolution as a family for the month of June, to get ready for our July 4th celebration.  This year we thought since our children were older it would nice if they knew "the why" of why we celebrate Independence Day each year.  This is a great read!  Filled with action, history and plenty imagination.  A great asset to any child's summer reading!  In my {humble opinion}  one just miss with the Adventures in Odyssey books!
