Some thoughts from Amanda--3rd grade, 8 years old--after I
Kids Who Rule is about how kings and queens were chosen when they were little kids. I liked how it was non-fiction, but I really don't like non-fiction, so that's a good privilege for the author. I liked it because it was educational, so parents might like that, and it's a good book! Most non-fiction books are boring. My favorite chapter was "The Girl was born to be King," Queen Cristina of Scotland. I would recommend this book to people who are looking for good books, and someone whose parents are looking for something educational, because they don't usually read non-fiction books. New words are explained really well, so I think someone younger than me could read this book, too.
