Book Review - Wright On Time - Arizona

Wright on Time Books an Imprint of Do Life Right, Inc.
By Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley
Illustrated by Tanja Bauerle
ISBN 978-0-9824829-0-2

The Wright Family makes the first stop of their RV trip around the United States in Arizona where they will explore a private cave. Aidan and Nadia are homeschooled and every adventure provides a learning experience. Aidan is hopeful that he will see bats in the cave. Nadia wants to look for gems and minerals.
All set with food, water and the equipment needed to safely explore the cave Aidan, Nadia and their parents set off with instructions from Bob, the cave’s owner, to be out of the cave by dusk or they will be locked in. What will they find? Will they make it out in time? I would recommend you read to book to find out.

This is a delightful story of cave exploration, with descriptions of stalagmites, stalactites, gems, minerals, and much more. In addition to learning about what is in a cave there is suspense and adventure as they split into pairs and go in different directions. This first book of a new series is a wonderful resource for anyone learning about Arizona.

Great story idea! I love caves because of the exposure I had to them as a kid. This sounds like a nice book to interest a new generation of cavers!

I've been fascinated by cave exploration. I met a lady & her husband that explore and navigate through unexplored caves. They had great stories. I'm sure kids will love this book. Good luck to you.
If you're doing a page for home schoolers with acivities and such, they called themselves & other cave explorers splunkers.
