Little Kid Reaction:
Big Kid Reaction:

All of the titles in this series are excellent. The authors know their audience and engage them immediately. The books are fun to read and provide a little color to the history and heroes that 8 to 12 year olds might not get from the typical textbook. I wish there was an opportunity to keep the series going with updated list of heroes and heroines.

Pros:

Carefully crafted stories, interesting characters, and excellent illustrations are the highlights of this book and this series.

Cons:

None.
