First off, I want to commend the illustrator. The illustrations are wonderful as usual. I particularly got a kick out of little miss wearing the 3-D glasses on her way to the theater. This book really helps make history seem alive.
I was happy to see my initial concerns were not warranted. The book goes over more than just the infamous assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. It describes the history of the theater from its inception to its current purpose. It doesn't sugar coat history, but rather describes the theater, the assassination, and details what happened to the theater afterwards. Little Miss History has given me another lesson in this country's past, and I appreciate it. She doesn't gloss over any of the important pieces and in fact offers the smaller details that can get overlooked.
Another treasure for the library and my children's education.
