This was part of our History curriculum for our oldest this year. This was a fun way to present parts of history. As a writer I appreciated the uniqueness of the journalistic style for recounting history. It also has "advertisements" to see the types of things people would have been buying and selling back then. It made me want to visit that time period and interview people myself. My oldest loved it also. He enjoyed the pictures to go along with the story.
4.5 stars for this unique history book!
