Michelle’s Review:

Who doesn’t dream of being able to road school their children? This fun, educational and family-friendly book narrates the adventures of the Wright family as they travel and homeschool their way through the US in their RV. This first book is set in a local, desert cave in Arizona where you follow Nadia, Aidan and their parents to discover the wonders of the cave. The creative writing lets your children learn along with the Wrights and will keep their interest the whole way through this book. You get to know a little about each character and what each of them are trying to get out of their new homeschooling experience. It even has a glossary and other interesting facts just in case you need to give more details to your child.

A Special Thanks goes out to Henry,age 8, from Holly Springs NC for this review~

I read the book “ Wright on Time”. It was about the Wright family. The Wright family is made of Mom, Dad, and Nadia and Aidan, the elementary-aged kids. They are a homeschooling family that travels around the U.S. in an R.V. I wish I could travel around the U.S in an R.V. I would like to do that because I think it would be cool to see all the national parks and states. In this book, they stop at Kartchers Cavern in Arizona. It’s a cavern with special minerals that you can keep and lots of bats. Nadia wanted to find Malachite, and Aidan wanted to learn about the bats. Everything was going well until they woke up the bats and almost got locked in. I wondered if they would get out or have to stay there! But they yelled so loud that a lady heard them, and they were saved. My favorite part was when Aidan and Dad found the special emblem. It didn’t say what it was, and now I am left wondering what it is. I wonder if the next book will say. I liked this book so much that I can’t wait until the next book. I wonder if the author will make one for California or North Carolina. I recommend this book for kids ages 7 to 10, but I don’t expect 7 year olds to read all the big words.
