Kathleen Thorne-Thomsen is one author who really understands kids. In this book, Thorne-Thomsen introduces children to a cast of overseers dedicated to the conservation of this wonderful establishment, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the inner-workings of a museum and the many jobs needed to run an institution housing collections from plants to paintings. Kids will also meet the owner of this fine estate and learn something about daily life during Mr. Huntington's lifetime when the property was a working ranch.

Thorne-Thomsen also provides complete instructions for activities such as designing a bookplate, making a leaf quilt, organizing a collection of family photographs, and background on what curators and conservators do to make sure that treasures from the past will last for years to come.

And while this book is aimed at children, parents aren't completely left out. There are many historical facts and pictorial reproductions from The Huntington collection not previously published anywhere else.
