My family and I read this book aloud during our holiday road trip to see the family this Christmas. This interactive reading adventure mixed history with decision-making challenges that were well-gauged for a young child learning not only about history but also responsibilities, risks, and planning.
The book provided my niece with a positive reading experience. She was able to generate a full-car discussion around the various journeys because the content was compelling to all passengers while also accessible to her reading level.
I'd think the age range for interest is roughly 6-limitless for an interactive reading with several people. If reading alone, I'd say the age level might be 6-11. The book includes a short glossary, critical thinking questions, and further reading resources in the closing sections.
