"Beyond The Attic Door" by Tracy Del Campo

About this book:

  The year is 1925, and the nation is at odds as the "trial of the century" approaches. Mr. John Scopes, a schoolteacher, has been arrested for teaching evolution. Creationists and evolutionists are debating the existence of God and the authority of the Bible. Many believe religion may be doomed.
  Meanwhile, eleven-year-old Lulu and her seven-year-old brother, Buddy, are visiting their grandmother in the Missouri countryside. On a dark and stormy night, they sneak into the attic workshop of their uncle, a brilliant scientist and inventor, and suddenly find themselves on a harrowing journey through time.
  Join Lulu and Buddy on this incredible adventure filled with history, humor, and hair-raising excitement, as they discover the meaning of faith: Beyond the Attic Door.

This was such a cute & fun read! Many parts bought up some of my old creation science lessons! “Beyond the Attic Door” was a short book {only 87 pages! A good size for new readers! :) } with nice size chapters…great for reading a chapter every night before bed and would open up for family discussions about creation & the Creator! :)
