If you want fun, exciting, adventurous books for your kids, Focus on the Family Imagination Station books are IT!
I read Battle for Cannibal Island to my kids on a long car trip we took. They were so caught up in the story, they did not want to quit reading! It took up about an hour and a half to two hours of our trip. I had to stop occasionally to get a drink, and they kept saying "Read more!"
Patrick is having a bad day. When Patrick and Beth accidentally take a trip in the imagination station to Fiji in the 1850's, Patrick's day doesn't get much better. They end up as stowaways on a ship right off the coast of an island of cannibals, who have just burned down the Christian village. Patrick, gets knocked over board, and has to fend off escaped convicts, a horrible storm, and worst of all the cannibal king. Beth follows the missionary James Calvert to the island in the rescue boat to search for Patrick. Are they heading right into danger or will their mission be successful? What does Patrick learn from all of this?
I received this book to review from the Tyndale Blog Network. These Imagination Station books are wonderful for kids, and to help teach values and build character in their lives. Not only that, they also include history of the characters in the story such as the missionary John Calvert in this book and the Island of Fiji. They are a cool educational tool!
Battle for Cannibal Island is an Adventure in Odyssey Imagination Station adventure to teach about James Calvert, a missionary to Fiji. It was easy to see God in the story even if it was short. It taught we should love our enemies & pray for me.
