Mojo Book Review and a GIVEAWAY: “Carmen of the Golden Coast” by Madeline Brandeis

This is another children’s book from long ago. The copy I have was printed in 1935 and belonged to my mother.

I love this book. It centers on a little girl who discovers history and adventure as she travels the West Coast. The inside covers show a hand-drawn map that indicates the important locations from the book. Actual photographs of places and actors posing as the book’s characters give credence to Carmen’s journey.

This is one in a series of books by Brandeis called “Children of All Lands” wherein Brandeis delivers wonderful writing detailing the heritage of a particular nation … read the rest. . .
