Treasures at the Museum by Deborra Richardson Book Review

Treasures at the Museum
by Deborra Richardson

Treasures at the Museum is Deborra Richardson's first children book. But as Chair and Chief Archivist at the Smithsonian American History Museum, she is an expert on her topic. Richardson gives children a glimpse at the inner workings of the Museum archive in a story packaged to appeal to children.

The Story:

Robbie and his little sister Brittany are used to going adventures with their Aunt Imani and her friend Maxi. Today's adventure is a special trip to the Museum where Maxi works. Aunt Imani picks up the kids and takes them on a sightseeing tour of the city on the way to visit Maxi. Once they get to the Museum, they are treated to a special back scenes tour, where they get to see how everything is done in the archives, plus they get to try it out on Robbie's Personal treasures.

Treasures at the Museum is educational and fun to read to kids. It's good for slightly older kids that will appreciate a book with only a few pictures.
