We were not scheduled to read it yet but Froggy brought it to me and requested it. We read it slowly as suggested, talking about the various events and places in the book taking about a week to go through it as recommended. Froggy was surprisingly enthralled. She has been carrying the book around with her since rereading it. She talks about George Washington and his adventures frequently.
I had my doubts about Ambleside history but for American History at least it is working.
