Book Review: Wright On Time


We received two books from the Wright on Time Series to review recently: Wright on Time Arizona and Wright on Time Utah.  My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed both books!


The Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books are about an RV-living family who travels the USA. Each book is set in a different state with a different fun and educational theme. I loved that each book can be read and enjoyed without having to have read others in the series. But of course, once you start reading about the Wright family and their adventures, you are drawn in and will want to read their story right from the very beginning!

Homeschooling mother Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley writes the series, which follows a homeschooling family (mom, dad, and their two children, Aidan and Nadia) as they visit each of 50 states (one per book).  Along the way they learn about different subjects and also work at unraveling a mystery about a strange device they find in book one.

In book one of the series, the Wright family start their homeschooling adventure in Arizona. The daughter, Nadia, is interested in finding minerals and rock formations, wile her brother, Aidan wants to see bats. The mystery develops when Aidan finds more than bats--he finds a mysterious object buried in the rock.

Book two finds the Wright family in Utah. My 5 year old absolutely fell in love with this book because Aidan and Nadia are going on a dinosaur dig in Utah. There is nothing quite like the mention of dinosaurs that will grab and keep my little guy's attention! And of course, there is another mystery to be solved in Utah.

I really like these books, and recommend them for families to read and enjoy together. Though my boys are 3 and 5 years old, they both were so involved in the stories, and excited to get in bed at night and read them with me. An excellent way for all of us to share and learn together!

Disclosure:  I received these two books in order to do a review. All opinions expressed are my own and may differ from others' opinions. No monetary compensation was received.
