This is a great book for children to read to learn about how the people of our country lived in the past. Things were so much different than they were now, so it is definitely an eye opener for children. It is a little bit lengthy, but each section is very interesting to read. Each section has a question like; Who watched the kids? or Where did people shop? This is a good book for any age to learn about how our country has changed over the years.
I think this is a great book for children to read. Sometimes I don’t think children understand how much things have changed in a hundred years. New technologies have made the living situation much better. I like how they explained that sports were just being invented a hundred years ago and the rich and the poor traveled in very different ways.
A very cool book that teaches a ton of fun facts about the past in a Q & A-style format that makes learning history fun, fun, fun! I started reading this book to my son, and after a while realized that I was engrossed in it and he wasn't even paying attention.
