This is a book that I read as a young girl and it was fun to read it again to my grandchildren. The story is dated and I had to explain some of it to them, like the trolley car, and the apparent freedom to roam anywhere they wanted even at a very young age as in "Rufus M". It is a good story to point out the changes that most children do not realize have occurred in society until they reach high school. My grandchildren both now see the world through different eyes.
Also, the 10 year old boy, who is used to mysteries, found the story of early 20th century family life too slow at times.
I would recommend it for readers age 10 and up but be prepared to answer questions if you can.
