    I love history and want to teach my children to respect things that are old or in the past and books like this are wonderful in helping with that. The storyline shows that even though something is old doesn't mean it's junk. This book does a great job at teaching lots of different lessons: respect for hard work, teamwork, and critical thinking. Plus the artwork is lovely as always with Burton's books.
