5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful illustrations and well detailed account!, November 5, 2011
This review is from: Just Fine the Way They Are: From Dirt Roads to Rail Roads to Interstates (Hardcover)
"Just Fine the Way They Are" written by Connie Nordhielm Wooldridge and illustrated by Richard Walz is an account of how the world has moved from having dirt roads to rail roads to interstates.
John Slack, the tavern keeper, is happy with life and believes things are fine just the way they are with the rutted dirt road. Slack is resistant to the changes that congress and others want with building a main road and a railroad. With each change that comes along, it is believed that it is fine and travel is made easier and easier, but as time goes on there are always ways to make it even easier and better. Just as it is with many things today, some are resistant to change, but then when it occurs, the changes are adapted to and even appreciated after time.
This is a beautiful account for children that displays how times have changed with travel through the years. The illustrations are beautiful and filled with details that children and adults will love to look at. There is a thorough time line included as well. This would be a great resource for elementary classrooms.
