Its a Must Have for sure.
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

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!
