This book takes the reader up to 2011 and is extremely well written and illustrated. Being true it adds something special PLUS if you want to read the latest on Wisdom you can google her. As of date of writing this review, Wisdom is now 66 years old and has just recently hatched out another chick! INCREDIBLE! Highly recommend this book for youngsters. Definite keeper in this house!
