I was disappointed in this book. Some of the links wouldn't connect, thus I had to go back. Can I get a refund?

This is an excellent opportunity for children to see both sides of the historical events making them more engaging and entertaining. Choices allow students to dictate the "path" of their education and adventure. I even had fun reading the book.
