Format: Paperback
"What if..." is the question that begins each Monday in Mr. Caruthers' third-grade class. Abigail and her friends love Mondays because they get to imagine what would have happened if famous figures in history hadn't done the important things they did. This particular Monday, Mr. Caruthers asks his class what would have happened if Abraham Lincoln had quit and not issued the Emancipation Proclamation. After class, Abigail and three of her friends discover that this is not a hypothetical question - Mr. Caruthers has been to the past, trying to convince President Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, but he wouldn't listen. Mr. Caruthers shows the four students a device that looks like a large Game Boy along with a cartridge which will take them back in time to save history. They will only have two hours and they must succeed or the world as they know it will be changed forever.

When the children journey to the past, they see the world of 1862 and how different it was from their time. They meet several famous figures from history before finally meeting President Lincoln. When they cannot convince him that the North will win the war, they end up taking him "back to the future" so that he can see how important it is that he issue the Emancipation Proclamation.

Readers who like the "Magic Tree House" series will enjoy this series as well. It is apparent that the authors have spent time researching their subject and they spoon out the historical information in a painless and enjoyable fashion. The back of the book contains the text of The Emancipation Proclamation as well as more historical information which enhances the story. The next book in the series is called "Disney's Dream" with the question, "What if Walt Disney never..." For the question and the answer, you'll have to wait for Book 2 of this fun and educational series.

Who would have thought to put those two together? Stacia Deutsch & Rhody Cohon, that's who! This is still my favorite book in the Blast to the Past series. (Although I'm looking forward to the next book about Bell!) Similar to The Magic Tree House, but in my opinion better. I appreciate the additional notes in the back including the texts from the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address. My local "testers," ages 8-10 thought these were fun books!

This book is wonderful!! It is educational,fun,and exciting. I couldn't put it down.I felt like I was in the story meeting Abraham Linclon.

Finally, a fast-paced chapter book with real and engaging characters that help make history come alive. This book grabs you from the beginning as the children need to travel in time to help steer the course of history. As a teacher and children's librarian, I was thrilled to discover this new book series. The historical facts are woven into the story so seamlessly, that children's interest will be sparked and they won't even realize that they may have learned something. This book is the ideal choice for Black History Month, Presidents, American History and it is a true adventure. My own reluctant reader couldn't put it down! Highly recommended! We're looking forward to the next book, PLEASE keep writing!

I am a third grader who loves to read. This was a great book because there is comedy, educational stuff, fiction, and previews of the next book. Stacia and Rhody have really thought up some great and entertaining stuff. There are things that I have never found in any other book, like time travel using a device like a game boy! This book would be the best for adventure readers, but I think everyone should read it because it's what all kids would like.

This is a really fun book to read... especially if you like time travel stories. It takes you back on an adventure to the time of Lincoln. You discover that he had a very hard time in making decisions that would free the slaves. You see how the students meet the challenges to help President Lincoln.

It is fun and the characters are easy to like. A great book and I am looking forward to the next in the series.

I thought the book was very good. I am seven years old and I love to read. Science fiction books are my favorite and I thought time travel with a gadget was cool. If you like Magic Tree House books you will like this one too.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca Herman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 8, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is the first book in the Blast to the Past series, about the adventures of a group of kids who travel through time and meet famous historical figures, while learning how little it takes to change history.

Abigail and her classmates always enjoy Mondays at school, where their teacher asks them "what if" questions about historical events. This particular Monday, their teacher, Mr. Caruthers, arrives late at class, looking disturbed. After lessons, he confronts Abigail and a few of the other students with some shocking and disturbing news - he just came back from a trip to the past, where he learned Abraham Lincoln was ready to give up on freeing the slaves after a series of battles that the Union Army lost. Mr. C was unable to persuade President Lincoln to change his mind, but he hopes the kids may have more luck. So he sends them back in time, where they meet President Lincoln and must try to persuade him that he will be successful and it's still worth fighting for freedom.

I think this book would be a good choice for reluctant young readers -- the characters will appeal to kids, and the book is a fast-paced read that teaches history in a fun way. Kids who already love to read and enjoyed books such as the Magic Tree House series are sure to enjoy it as well.
