"Historical picture book perfect for early elementary school that focuses on Jacqueline Kennedy's mission to preserve Grand Central Station. It boggles my mind that this was ever a problem - why would we tear down a NYC landmark? But it almost happened! If it hadn't been for Jackie's voice, using her celebrity to draw attention to this issue, this historic building would have been torn down and replaced with a "modern" skyscraper. And because of this fight, the Supreme court made a decision that would help preservationists in years to come.

Fascinating story written for early readers but a great gateway into thinking about history and our country.
