"Why I liked this book – I liked this book because of the simple but colorful illustrations, the rhyme of the story and the history mentioned. I liked that the book is non-fiction. I am a fan of history and learning about cultures and I think it is important to have kids learn about different places in the world (and, well, I am favoring this book because I am from right outside Philadelphia ). I think the book is a great read-aloud and parents and kids can discover the great things about Philly!"

“It is a wonderful introduction to American history and Philadelphia history, especially. In fact, this longtime resident of Greater Philadelphia learned of a couple of landmarks with which I was unfamiliar. Chief Tamany’s statue was one.

“You touched on all the special and unique things that Philly offers- food, sports, history, and pleasure time with family.”
