Escape to the Hiding Place Book Review


About the Book

Patrick and Beth arrive in World War II Holland in the farm country. They must smuggle a baby (by bicycle) into the capable hands of Corrie ten Boom at her home in Haarlem. Along the way they hide from Nazi soliders, meet a Russian surgeon forced into service by the Germans, and encourage two Jewish children who haven't been outside in over three years. The children learn to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of everyday people who helped the Jews. (Goodreads)

My Review

I loved this book. Once again, this series is a delight to read and I think I will need to buy the set for my nephew. These books are perfect for him and full of accurate history. This book takes the reader into World War II where Beth and Patrick risk their lives to save a baby. The main plot of the book is the children traveling to Corrie's home in Haarlem. Packed full of adventure, the kids are right in the thick of things. Thanks to the Imagination Station they were able to hop back in time to experience all the adventure and see the reality of war.
Great book, great series.

Highly recommend!
