Illustrated by one of my favorite illustrators, S.D. Schindler, this is an awesome book for kids- around end of third grade and up is the best age, I think. Schindler's illustrations always make the words fun. This is the story of the first efforts to do a census in the U.S., told inthe form of a funny story. I'm a fan of books for kids that convey useful/true information while they entertain, and this totally fits the bill. I'm a children's Librarian, and I've purchased this for my own collection at home. When I read this one to the third and fourth grades this year, many of the classes broke into spontaneous applause! Highly recommend.
