Let me explain why only 4 Stars instead of 5, I am tough when it comes to giving out 5 Stars. Only two books I have ever read would I give 5 Stars to and I have read many Historical Novels (Ken Follett and Margaret Mitchell) I know this is written for a pre-teen group of readers, but I love reading about history and love listening to Rush Limbaugh's radio show, so it was natural for me to purchase this and his first book about the The Brave Pilgrims. Both have not disappointed me, It was fun to read about modern age kids getting the chance to see in person how this country was started, they even had the opportunity to talk with some of our founding fathers in the book. I highly recommend this book for all ages above 6 or 7 years old. if you are an adult, image you are reading like you were 12 years old again, it will make you feel young again!
