Dover, Delaware 1776: George and Gracie need to rescue their parents. Instead they find themselves time-traveling into the middle of the American Revolution. Not only that, but one of the twins changes into an animal with each time travel. This time Gracie is a horse. They end up helping Caesar Rodney make his famous ride into Philadelphia to vote “yes” for the Declaration of Independence. But time is running out to rescue their parents.

The Rescue Begins in Delaware is a very cute, brother and sister to the rescue of their parents book. This book reads very fast and is a fun adventure story. I loved how the end of the book had fun facts about a real character in the story and the state the kids visited. I enjoyed how the kids had to "return" the items their parents took from history before they could get them back.
This book is a fun start to the series!
4 out of 5 stars.
