really liked it

This story was fun to read and I really like the illustrations. The story is about the author's childhood in New York. He begins the story by saying "This is the story of when I was a boy, almost 100 years ago, when fire engines were pulled by horses, boys did not play with girls, kids went to libraries for books, there was no TV, you could see a movie for a nickel, and everybody wore a hat." Throughout the story we learn how the world once was. I could use this book to to teach what life was back then. After having my students read this nonfiction book, I can have them compare life back then, and life today. I think they will have fun comparing and be surprised with many stuff.
