"All of Mary Dobson's "Smelly Old History" books are an excellent way for elementary students to learn history and take whiffs of the many foul smells along history's timeline. The kids get so excited to smell the next foul smell they forget they are learning historical facts as they go. My first grade boy loves the books, but loves scratching the smells best. Some of the facts are a bit beyond 1st grade and younger, but they will still love the books. Ideal for 3rd-5th graders, who have some knowledge of ancient history and can remember names of people and important events in history. Excellent and fun choice for any elementary age student as a gift or for school." D.F. said.
"I ordered this book for a school teacher and she loved it. I was very happy to get her a copy so that she can use it for her classes over and over without having to request it from a library every year. It was an excellent purchase, thank you!" SKGeise said.
"I first read these from the library, stinky fun and informative as well. When I realized that they were becoming harder to come by, I decided to get my own copies." Xaylem said.
