Summary

Summary

Connie Nordhielm Wooldridge has built a reputation for delivering children's stories that are both fun and educational. Here she chronicles the rise of America's transportation system, from the call for a National Road in 1805 to the present day. Many opposed innovations like the Model T and the U.S. highway system, but progress marched on. Wooldridge ends with a look at what the future may hold, and challenges kids to view change in a positive way.

Editorial Reviews

“Great for discussion, this well-conceived picture book illustrates an interesting point about resistance to new ideas.” Booklist
“It can be difficult to locate nonfiction children’s materials on the subject; Just Fine the Way They Are helps fill a void.” School Library Journal
“The story has got real rhythm to it, helped along by the refrain ‘Things were just fine the way they were.’” Kirkus Reviews
