To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wanted to like this book. I bought it online and read it before considering reading it to my young children before Veterans Day. The story is very stilted. It's like one long book report, including the use of quotes from Moina Belle Michael. Lots of quotes. Therefore, this book is useful to grade-school children as a biography to use for a book report but it, unfortunately, is not a good read. I will be returning it. If you're looking for a great book to explain Veteran's Day to young children, I recommend "Veterans Day" by Mir Tamim Ansary.
