What are the Wright on Time books all about?

The Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books are about an RV-living family who travels the USA.  Each book is set in a different state with a different fun and educational theme. Each book is a stand alone book. This means that you can pick up any book in the series and enjoy it fully without having read the books before it. Of course, if you want the details on the Wright family’s back story, you are going to want to catch up on the other books in the series. 🙂

The Wright family is a family of five: (1) Aidan, age 7, (2) Nadia, age 11, (3) Stephanie, the mom, (4) Harrison, the dad, and (5) Prince Pumpkin III, the family’s pet turtle.  Nadia and Aidan are homeschooled, more technically called “roadschooled” since they live on the road. Stephanie telecommutes as a computer programmer. Harrison works on the road as a freelance writer. Together, they enjoy the freedom and joys of living on the road and learning about all 50 of the United States of America.
