The Golden Goblet
AuthorEloise Jarvis McGraw
I really liked this book when I was 11, and I really liked this book twenty-one years later.

Paddle-to-the-Sea
AuthorHolling Clancy Holling
ISBN0808551515
I don't think this would make a great bedtime story as it would take about 30-45 minutes to read it aloud at least. It is a full page of text with a full picture. It would make a great first reader book for someone who wants to read a story if they enjoy more history things.

I really enjoyed this book....

This book is great in some ways but it falls apart in other ways.

While it does give a detailed explanations, the book is not 100 percent accurate....
