An activity guide for kids, not an audio book

What would have made The Power Of The Penny: Abraham Lincoln Inspires a Nation better?

This would be better in paperback/hardcover where a child could write and respond to the various questions / tasks / suggestions.

Has The Power Of The Penny: Abraham Lincoln Inspires a Nation turned you off from other books in this genre?

If I could have seen some of the pages, I would not have purchased this book. It seems more like an activity book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The child read too slow - even though we sped it up - it then made the adult narrator read too fast.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power Of The Penny: Abraham Lincoln Inspires a Nation?

I would have one person read the book (or at least at the same speed).

Any additional comments?
