Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, December 14, 2010:
"With its clever premise, keenly observed visual comedy, and easygoing pedagogy (an excellent afterword draws more directly on scholarship), this book deserves a place on the shelves next to the Magic School Bus series."
Review, Booklist, January 1, 2011:
"This lively picture book offers a great way to talk to kids about history: not the statesmen and generals but the lives of ordinary people at home."
Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 1, 2011:
"A clever history book likely to spark conversations about times gone by."
I read it to Kindergarten. They love to be read to. It was a little long for what we were doing. They did repeat some of the phrases with me.Published 7 months ago by Jeanne Weber
Bought this book for my nephew, and he asks to have it read over and over and over. He learns a bit about history, as well as opening thoughtful discussions.Published on May 1, 2011 by Amber Golden Raskin
