At first, I felt like this was a book for adults disguised with nice illustrations. After another journey through it, though, I could appreciate that maybe I’m not the only person who finds history a hard subject to study. I think this book is more suited for my ten-year-old than my four-year-old, though my four-year-old will definitely be interested in the adventures of Benedict’s life.
Older children will find this a lighter history, one that breaks up the facts with illustrations that support and supplement the words. Younger children will be interested in the activity and adventures Benedict faced.
Adults who find themselves in the middle, reading this out loud, may find themselves struck by how busy a man could be in the days before electricity.
This is a book for the whole family, I think, and one that will last the years and be worth revisiting later, as the younger kids get older.
