Review ~ Book 1 ~ Wright on Time- Arizona


We live in Michigan, but have wanted to move to Arizona for years now.  I was excited to find out about a new chapter book series for kids ~ Wright on Time by Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley.  The first book in this new series takes place in Arizona!

This series is about the Wright family.  They are a homeschool family that is traveling the US in their RV.  Each month brings them to a new state with a new educational theme to explore and play with.  They prove that learning can happen all the time, anywhere, and that being with family is fun!

The characters are ~

Aidan, age 7 ~ Boisterous and joking all the time, this sporty boy knows how to have fun!

Nadia, age 11 ~ Curious and fiery, this intellectual girl can always find out answers to even the most difficult questions.

Their parents ~ Harrison, a writer and linguist expert, and Stephanie, a telecommuting computer expert; ready to adventure with their children.

Prince Pumpkin III, turtle extraordinaire ~ This 50 year old little guy is holding on tight, as the family RV and a mysterious device take him on an adventure no turtle has ever gone on before.

I gave this book to my 8 year old daughter to read.   She really enjoyed the characters, the stories and the information on Arizona.  She said she would read book two when it comes out.

After she read it, I read through it.  I found it a great story that was very educational.  It is educational in a tricky way that kids don't realize.  My favorite way :)  This is a wonderfully written story that would be good for homeschooled kids as well as public/private school kids.  I can see it being a great tool for home school parents though!  Definitely worth checking out.

You can find out more about the book series at the website ~ Wright on Time.
