Format: Paperback
This is a Great Easy Fun Reading Book for Kids, I highly recommend for all kids here in the Orange County Area to read, to learn the history of their area around them. Its fun and will hold their attention. Love the book myself as a parent, I learned alot from it also.
Its a Must Have for sure.

Format: Paperback
I love history especially California history so I am hugely biased towards this type of book to begin with. Also, there are incredibly few books on Orange County history, and those that I know of are not written in a manner that would hold a child's attention. My 9 year-old son read this book and enjoyed it. While not reviewed by Lexile.com, I would say this is written at a third to fifth grade level.

You are reading about Miss Jones, a third grade teacher, and her class as they learn about Orange County. The format of Miss Jones presenting information and the students showing interest and asking questions draws the young reader in. There are many pictures of this class, the students, as well as what they are studying. There are thirty chapters covering:

- Dinosaur Fossils
- Spanish Explorers
- The Pirates who plundered San Juan Capistrano Mission
- Richard Henry Dana, Jr's sailing adventures on the Pilgrim and his book "Two Years Before the Mast"
- The Gold Rush
- Buffalo Bill's Wild West show in Santa Ana
- Walt Disney and the beginning of Disneyland
- The El Toro Blimps
- How the Anaheim Angels got started,

and much more. City and county government figures are included giving the kids an intro to local government. It includes a timeline, glossary and index.

Kudos to the author, Stan Oftelie, the publisher, and those groups who financially supported this book.

If I were a teacher, this would be required reading!
