Traveling through time

The wonders of time traveling
Maybe because all my life I’ve enjoyed watching tv series related to time travelers, this topic is always one of my favorites when a book of this sort comes to my hands.
So, I spent a very good time reading The Time Traveler’s Journal, a funny story written by Ed Masessa, and wonderfuly illustrated by Dan Jawkoski.
The story talks about Lieserl Einstein, who appears in this book as the lost child of Albert Einstein.
Lisa, as she calls herself in the story, wishes to go back and forward in time and to do so, she uses a rock that has come from the outer space.
While traveling through time Lisa starts working on a journal in the form of an interactive scrapbook, which allows the reader to learn by opening envelopes and reading little notes about different events that marked the history of this planet such as the sinking of the Titanic. She also talks about social revolutions like women fighting for their rights, and shows special landmarks in the world of art such as the moment in which the Monalisa was painted by Da Vinci.
She gives as well some advice to those who wish to become time travelers, and makes some reflexions about the importance of time in our lives and how often we take it for granted.
In the end, what might look like as a children’s book, gives a lot to do and to think about to the readers of all ages and times.
