5.0 out of 5 stars "Just one more chapter, dad?"
By Edward on January 19, 2016
I have been reading this to my children (ages 11, 9, and 7) as part of our bedtime routine, and they give it the highest praise a child can; when I reach the end of a chapter and stop, they all complain that they want me to keep reading! I especially appreciate that not only is it a compelling story, the kids are learning something at the same time.
In the interest of full disclosure, the kids aren't the only ones who want to keep reading... I look forward to each new chapter, too! There have been a few little things that I've had to explain along the way - mostly contemporary references to things my kids haven't encountered yet. But it is a decidedly enjoyable book, for both kids AND their parents. Highly recommended!

Greg’s already time traveled once. It worked out okay. This time, well it’s not so good, since it’s 1778 in Kentucky! The Indians are hostile, Greg’s not sure how to get back to his time, and things are only getting worse. Despite all his attempts, his situation is growing more grim each day. Jump back with Greg in this adventure filled with history, humor, and a whole lot of action!
The Adventures in Time series for middle-grade readers strives to interest children in our nation’s history by providing them with a fun, intimate learning experience through the eyes of another child. Children’s Literary Classics awarded both adventures its Seal of Approval.
Greg, a bright, inquisitive and extremely talkative young boy, is not at all pleased when his family moves to Kentucky for his father's job. He would prefer to be spending his summer with his best friend, Rose. But instead, his mom has volunteered him to participate in an 18th century reenactment in which he must wear a period costume that is far from comfortable.
Greg has traveled in time before, but he's not quite sure how. So, when he finds himself once again back in time, surrounded by five Indians with tomahawks and war paint, he's not entirely sure what to make of the situation. Having learned a thing or two from his previous time travel experiences, he's less afraid and better equipped to maintain a sense of calm as he faces the Indians who have just killed and scalped a man bearing a satchel with letters dated from the summer of 1778.
Author C.M. Huddleston's Greg's Second Adventure in Time brings history to life as Greg explores our country's new frontier in colonial Kentucky. Action and adventure abound in this deliciously entertaining read that is likely to spur a keen interest in young readers, as history takes center stage in the continuation of this delightful series. This book is recommended for home and school libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Educational
By Laurel Kriegler on December 18, 2015
This time around Greg travels back in time to the Siege of Boonesborough in 1778. Huddleston deftly depicts life on the frontier. The mix of nationalities who moved into the americas in those early years, the clothing, the fighting between the newcomers and the original nations. Once again, one gets a lot of detail, enough to learn from, but this isn't a dry historical read. Huddleston brings the characters to life, especially when seen through Greg's eyes.
What I really found interesting in this account - which is stated to be historically accurate - is the similarities between frontier life in the early states and in South Africa during the early-to-mid 1800s. Although some fifty years later in the case of South Africa, much is the same. Forts, Stations, fighting for freedom from Britain, amongst others. Life too was very similar, as was travel by ox wagon. Though I've previously read books on the early years in America, this was the first time that I really saw similarities between the two.
I also enjoyed the analysis on time travel theories near the start of the book, and it was good that the question of HOW Greg is able to time travel was answered.
Now I want to know what Rose and Mom have been up to. Please!
All around, an entertaining and educational read that I am sure will be accessible to younger readers.
