Curiosity is aptly named. Talented author Gerald Allen Wunsch whets children's appetite for learning through the adventures of Ginger and Irene on their visit to Ginger's grandparents. Looking at the month-long visit as a chance to just enjoy themselves, the girls are pleasantly surprised when they don't have much time for being bored in the country when Grandpa George takes them for rides in his sports car to places of interest they'd never thought of and they get a chance to learn some history. The author also uses the girls' natural curiosity when the dog falls into a hole that turns out to be lined with stone like a cellar. They just have to know what it is. So that night they sneak outside for some private exploration. A different kind of adventure for the young reader that will open their eyes to the history around them and encourage an interest in reading a wide variety of books. A book to be used as a stepping stone to a wider field of interest, a story to interest both boys and girls.
