The Time Machine Girls is a fun chapter series for kids aged 6-8 that aims to combine the sense of wonder that comes from science fiction with real stories from history.
Don't go in the attic.
Eight-year-old Hazel and her little sister, Bess, have been given more than 100 rules to follow while visiting their grandparents' farmhouse for the summer. But the most important one was not to go into the attic. So, of course, that was also the first one Hazel's 6-year-old sister decides to break.
But the girls never expected they would accidentally uncover a family secret that involves a hidden time machine and their mysterious (and scary) grandpa. They also never expected they'd start a chain of events that leads them through time, meeting historical characters and learning about their inventions, discoveries, and strengths of character that have helped shape history.
In the first book, the girls travel to 1738 to meet a young George Washington.
