This is a lovely book for young readers. Gareth the cat and his boy Jason travel to nine different places in the past, where they make a positive difference in the lives of others, and see growth in their own lives.
There's lots of fun information in this book, including some of the history, literature and mythology which JK Rowling referenced in the novels.
I only wish it included footnotes, or somehow cited these sources more clearly, for readers who might want to know more.
Lots of these songs are fun, and a few are absolute classics. (and there are a few you can skip)
You have to really listen to the words.
This CD could be great driving music.
I agree with the previous review. While the book does have a few fun moments of adventure, they are not realistic, the villain is cartoonish, and much of the history is wrong.
Read a better series instead.
Use this book with care. It combines some generally good ideas with flawed analysis and bad advice.
He thinks a 40 year mortgage is a good idea.
He thinks it unfair that financial aid formulas ask a family who saved for kids' college to pay a smaller percentage of their total assets than a family who failed to save. He fails to recognize that the alternative would severely penalize saving.
Better personal finance books include:
Jane Bryant Quinn, Making the Most of Your Money
Elizabeth Warren and Amelia Warren Tyagi, All Your Worth
