The Voyagers Series: Europe
Will D. Rhame
Strength Through Communications
The series takes our two protagonists on various travels into adventures related to the specific time and places involved in the story. The brother and sister duo, Erin and Drew, want to travel, and as they journey into the various stories, find themselves immersed in other eras and cultures. They are anxious to read the adventures and find themselves learning in the process.
This is a fantastic series for elementary and middle school aged children. Not only are the stories full of adventure; but children will learn in the process. This is a multi-media approach to learning that uses a four step method. There are questions at the end of each chapter, crossword puzzles that require the use of underlined words in the chapter, on line games for each chapter that uses a code from the crossword puzzle, and each chapter provides a life lesson. Children have to read each chapter to go from one phase to the next. Not only that, but they have to put on their thinking caps to get the life lesson from each chapter. The adventures are purely fiction; but the geography, science, math, social studies, and such that is injected into the story line is completely factual.
If you have a child who does not like to read or is having difficulty with reading and learning comprehension, I highly recommend this series. At present there are two books available, with several more in the making. The second book is about Africa. They have everything that can help maintain a child"s interest including pictures and as noted previously, the games. I encourage parents to check out the website for additional information. www.thevoyagers.net
I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy for reading and reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in any way except to receive the book to read and review.
I give The Voyager Series: Europe 5 out of 5 stars
