Overall, I found this book to be a lot of fun to read. The concept is interesting in that it involves modern day children who time travel to different time periods. I found the information simply stated (for children) and accurate. I am always looking for children's books that have a bit of historical fact in them which is why I chose this book. I honestly didn't notice the narrative part as a couple of other reviewers noticed but then I was more involved in the overall story itself which I fully enjoyed. I read this book on my kindle and did find that the photos and illustrations were a bit small so I would recommend to buy this book in paperback to get the full benefit. I am looking forward to the second book in this series (and would love to hear about Peri's adventure during the Salem Witch Trials).
I was also impressed by the attempt to cover the topic of a blended family and the effect on various members involved.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
