    "6 Year Old Loves it"

    Clearly executed, my 6-year-old child listens to The America every day. I have learned a lot because the book is well written and because I can share it with my child.

    "All American"

    Interesting topic. Vivid pictures of early contennential dwellers up through modern times. A great starting point on the subject. Intro canned message says audible kids which I think is a glitch.
