Voyage with the Vikings by Marianne Hering and Paul McCusker

Cousins Beth and Patrick are visiting Mr. Whittaker at Whit’s Soda Shoppe when they come across the Imagination Station.  Although Mr. Whittaker says it is broken, it comes to life when the duo sit inside it.  After finding a letter requesting a Viking Sunstone, the cousins agree to travel to the time of Vikings to try to find the stone.  Will they find the stone, and a way back to the present?

This book reminded me a lot of the popular Magic Tree House series, with a Christian perspective.  I actually quite enjoyed this book, although I am not the target audience.  So many times I have read the Magic Tree House books, with my own children, and when I was substituting in another teacher’s class, and I have shuddered inwardly at the supernatural references.  I think it is awesome to have an alternative the Magic Tree House books.

If your children enjoy the Magic Tree House books, they will love this book.  If you are looking for a Christian series for younger readers, this would be a great choice!  At this time, there are twelve books published from this series, with another one coming out in January, 2014.
