This engaging and delightful book for children explains to kids how to start researching their family tree. Knight and Wood delve into how kids can get started: how to interview family members; how they can share the information they learned with family members; and how to see how their different family histories can intersect during major historical periods in American History.

Finding Family Treasure provides a much-needed reminder that we are more alike than we are different.

At the same time, parents and educators will love how history is woven throughout this story in thrilling vignettes that will capture the attention of students.

Finding Family Treasure is a wonderful book, not only for the target audience of fourth through sixth graders but for anyone. I enjoyed the review of historical events large and small and even learned some new historical facts. Children will also learn about resolving conflict from the protagonist/antagonist issue. One fine aspect of the book is that the chapters are short. This makes it easy for children in the target age, or even those younger, to remain interested.
