Historic preservation is a challenging topic to present to young readers, and Wing has done an excellent job. Famous buildings such as the White House and Grand Central Station offer a concrete way to introduce kids to history. For those who have the opportunity, standing in a building steeped in history can be a unique experience, one that allows you to imagine the past as the atmosphere seeps into your being. For those who have not had this experience, this story provides a taste of that special feeling that just might entice young readers to explore history. It also gives them a peek into how citizens make a difference.
