I felt I learned virtually everything about the Pony Express. For instance, it is an early traditional form of mail transportation. I learned when Bill joined the Pony Express and when he stopped. I am glad to have learned about the Pony Express, although I would like to get a more exciting book with more action next time.
I recommend Buffalo Bill and the Pony Express for kids who are six or seven years old. I would like to find a book on this subject that is better for nine year olds.
We read just before bed and the level 4 books don't push him too hard (level 5's are a bit too much for just before bed) just hard enough that he is learning words, inferences, remembering characters and events, and learning to love reading stories - all the things I want him to take away from these books.
5 stars well deserved.
