I really enjoyed reading this book! It is written for young children, so many business concepts that a child wouldn’t know like “Revenue,” Mortgage,” or “Board of Directors” are explained with definitions for the bigger words. There are also “Fun Fact” boxes within the text that give extra tidbits of information about Walt Disney and his company.
I especially liked the emphasis on family, heritage, and excellence which the Disney company is known for. I think the author did a good job of giving a sweeping overview of the history of Disney with a few interesting details added in, but still keeping the main story fairly simple and easy to follow. The book doesn’t get bogged down in too many details, but focuses on the bigger picture; and the details that ARE added in are obviously carefully chosen to reinforce the main themes of the story.
I would recommend this book to any child ages 7-12. It’s fun and interesting, and kept my attention! I also liked the funny illustrations and drawings included on every page!
