Recommends it for: Young Anthropologists.

Beautiful illustrations and hand written text. The stories certainly have moments of excitement but can be quite wordy and a bit stodgy by today's standards. Certainly interesting read from a historical standpoint. My son is only 3.5 and he seemed a little bored by these. I'm not sure many older children will enjoy the slow moving plots unless they plan on becoming anthropologists.
