The Illustrations are definitely a plus and I overheard her explaining something funny in the book to her cousin, a sure sign of liking a book...
I would recommend it to any kid around a 3rd grade reading level or above, especially if they have any interest in history. It is not overflowing with facts, so it may not be good for a report, but rather as a non-fiction reading book.
