In the Escape to the Hiding Place WWII has come to Holland and so have Patrick and Beth. Patrick and Beth are on a mission to save a Jewish baby. With Germans everywhere and their options running out, what will they do? No matter where they turn they are not really safe. This book helps us understand that we cannot always escape, but that no matter what our circumstances, God is always with us. I also reviewed Battle for Cannibal Island. And received both books from Tyndale for the purpose of review. I thoroughly enjoyed. At times the books can be a little intense; But I read them out loud to my 5 and 7 year old and they both enjoyed the books. I love the history mixed in with a Christian twist. My kids love Magic Tree House books but this tops them by far. I am all for giving the kids information from a Christian/God perspective and am certainly going to be getting a few more of this series for my kids. I think kids need REAL heroes to admire!

Like every other Imagination Station book we've read, we really enjoyed this one. My 1st and 3rd grade children really enjoyed it as a read-aloud story, and also as a silent reading book. Each time I stopped reading for the night, they begged for more. They learned so much and always remembered what had happened during our "last episode" when we discussed it the next day. The story here is a great children's introduction to WWII and Jewish persecution. It was a wonderful introduction to the life of Corrie Ten Boom. We also listed to the audio of "The Hiding Place" by Focus on the Family. It's an amazing story that everyone--both children and adults--should hear!

Tyndale not only provided, “The Battle for Cannibal Island” for my review, but also “Escape to the Hiding Place” Book 9 in The Imagination Station series. “Escape to the Hiding Place” is another exciting adventure which begins with a plane crash, German Soldiers, and Bernard, a member of the Dutch Resistance. After avoiding arrest by the German Soldiers, Bernard takes Beth and Patrick to his family’s farm where several children are hiding because their families were taken to German Camps. Beth and Patrick are soon given an assignment of smuggling a Jewish baby to its mother. On their journey, the two cousins are chased by the Dutch Police, encounter the Gestapo, and learn of the dangers of daily life during World War II. This thrilling tale will capture the minds of children (and adults) with its many adventures which are laced with history and spiritual truths.
