About the Author
What We Thought
I requested this book from the LiraryThing Early Reviewers program thinking Matt, the history buff, would enjoy it. I was really excited when I found out I would be receiving a copy and couldn't wait to pass it on to him.
He thumbed through it and said, "I already know all of this!"
I should have known. He's forever watching the History Channel and gravitates to all of the shows on WWII.
He did chime back in though and say, "You can say that it is good though, I know it all, but it is a good book."
To my surprise, Ema snatched the book up and has really enjoyed it, particularly the activities that are tied in. She's already made a little straw rocket and has been begging to head outside in the below freezing temps to make a spy obstacle course.
I enjoyed the book too, as I found there were tidbits of history that I hadn't learned and found rather intriguing. I can't wait to add the other titles in the series to our home library.
If you are looking for a history book to add your collection that is full of facts but not dull, I would give this one five stars.
