To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was a great book for my 8 year old daughter. She loved how strong Nim was and how she was going to find a solution no matter what it took. In the end the girls's grandfather teaches her a lesson that many should learn or be reminded of. The book is set during the early 1940's and being Asian wasn't very easy...this Chinese american family wanted to do their part for the war effort, and they did.
