Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
With his father's help, a young man in Seattle stepped back in time to have historic experiences. He met Lou Gehrig, FDR, Jonas Salk, Thomas Edison, and even his own great grandfather and learned secrets to their strength of will, dedication to purpose, and love of country.
Photographer and author Michael Class made all of these magical things come true for his 12-year-old son, Anthony, by using advanced digital photography. After securing permission for photos of historic moments -- and endorsements from people in those photos -- he placed Anthony in the cockpit of the Spirit of St. Louis with Charles Lindbergh, on the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, in the laboratories of Thomas Edison and Jonas Salk, on Normandy beach on D-Day, at Ellis Island, and much more.
Father and son worked together for nearly four years to capture and compile adventures with 20th century American heroes. The result is a museum-quality history book, Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame, full of photos and stories of Anthony "meeting" and learning exciting lessons from inspiring Americans. The Web site, http://www.MagicPictureFrame.com, displays some of the book's captivating photographs.
Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame lifts spirits as it stimulates young minds. Embraced by the homeschooling community and parents and teachers nationwide, the book is a memorable gift for young adults, grades 6-12. Now, the book is available at a special Christmas price of $25 exclusively from http://www.MagicPictureFrame.com and Amazon.com, and by calling toll-free 1-800-247-6553.
Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame was named "Outstanding Book of the Year" by Independent Publisher; "Reviewers Choice" by Midwest Book Review; and "Editor's Pick" by Homefires: The Journal of Homeschooling Online. Nationally syndicated talk-show host Michael Medved calls the book "entertaining and educational."
Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 astronaut, says: "The book's vivid narrative and captivating photographs transported me through space and time: I felt that I was once again standing on the surface of the Moon in 1969. Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame tells it like it really was in America's early space program - the adventure, the risks, and the rewards. I almost believe that Anthony was there! I think that parents and teachers will appreciate the inspiring message this unique history book holds for America's next generation. I recommend this book to all young Americans, may they take us to the stars and beyond."
