When I Was Young: A Book About Family History by James Dunbar

Josh loves to sit on grandma's knee and listen to her stories - she always begins by saying When I was young... Grandma can remember hearing her grandfather's memories, too. In fact, for over 300 years, generations of this family have been passing on their memories. Only one small wooden doll has been around to see it all. The Wonderwise series presents facts in a way that will inspire young children's imaginations about the world around them.
