Book review: Wright in Time Book 2 Utah

     My 12 year old daughter and 7 year old son both enjoyed this series. Utah is another state we have yet to visit as a family, so much that was shared was new to my children. It is fun to read of this homeschooling family's travels through our country. This chapter book continues the story of the Wright family as shared in Book 1 Arizona.

     The Wright On Time series by Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley continues with a trip to Utah. Through the Wright family’s experiences you are exposed to attractions, terrain, animals, and more found in each state. A map is shared that includes facts and features about the state, too. This book shares the excitement of a dinosaur dig. The glossary includes many words about archaeology.

     These chapter books are filled with attention grabbing illustrations by Tanja Bauerle. The day we received a package with a set of three of these books my daughter started and finished the first one. She smiled while sharing with me about the adventures of 11 year old Nadia and her 7 year old brother Aidan. “They moved into an RV and are going to travel to all 50 states." That was one of the things that attracted Em to this series, as that is something we have discussed doing as a family. That mysterious device that intrigued her in the first book continues in this one, too.  

     Read about the whole series at their website: http://www.wrightontimebooks.com/. They even have character biographies, games, and a section for RV families.

About the Author
Lisa M. Cottrell-BentleyLisa M. Cottrell-Bentley has been writing since she was a child, winning her first writing contest at age 9. Lisa and her daughters spent many hours searching for children’s books about homeschoolers, but found very few. So, they decided to create their own. As they discussed their dream storylines, the Wright on Time series took shape. Beginning in their native southwest, the Wright family intends to take readers on a fun road trip that explores the entire USA!
