Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent book! This is a great book for children and adults! It's very interesting and informative! It's a great start to a series. The only thing that would make this book better is if the photos were in color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent series! Yay! A series of books that will captivate all of my children from the youngest (age 6) to the oldest (age 12), so we can still enjoy our bedtime "group read." And even better - one that I enjoy reading to them! Oh, and it gets even better - the books even teach about different times and places in history! (I have to add a recommendation for you of my favorite new parenting book: Perfect Parenting: The Dictionary of 1000 Parenting Tips - very helpful!)
