This book is great! Have you ever wondered how to teach your family about their heritage in American history? Listen to Grand Doll (the grandmother) talk to her grandchildren in the present and then go in a true story of their American heritage of coming to America and concluding with talking to the children in the present. This book is a good book for pre-teens, teens, and adults who want a "guide" for telling their own family history. Also, this would be a good read-aloud book for family times. All this books in this series are good.
