Review by Merrianne Metzger, PhD Educational Psychology:
"A fun read and real teaching tool. What a good way for an adult and child to explore a shared history!"
..."A picture book with a fresh message"
"I rounded up 4 of my neighbors (ages 7-11) and asked them to read it. The detailed illustrations charmed them ... The questions made them think."
