Whether you need a few end of Summer adventures for your child to read or you are already planning for the school year, I think the Adventures In Odyssey (AIO) Imagination Station Chapter Books are great to have around.
My daughter has read quite a few and I think the storylines are well thought out and exciting for kids. All the ones we have read send kids throughout time on some sort of adventure.
We just read the Hunt for the Devil’s Dragon, #11. It has about 144 pages and is a 5.5 x 8 paperback book that retails at $4.99 (sometimes you can find them cheaper, too–the sets on Amazon give a discount).
In the Hunt For The Devil’s Dragon, cousins travel back to Libya in the 13th century to battle dragons, make friends, figure out a secret and fight evil. My daughter just loved the book and read it all in one sitting.
The whole series is written from a Christian world view, so you will find Christian theology throughout the story. I do not find them preachy, by the way. While the stories are fictional, they do have historical context, so I like to find a time period that goes along with the history we are studying in homeschool and add these books in as a fun thing for my 3rd grader.
