Tammy and the Declaration of Independence is a wonderful, fun read for kids ages 8-12. It is a great way for children to learn about our great ancestors who forged our Nation's independence. This is the second book in The Wurthington Diary series and I think it would be helpful if the first was read. The first, The Little Doll Girl is an amazing read with magic and adventure.

In Tammy and the Declaration of Independence Tammy notices one morning that thinks are a bit off at school. The flag is different there are British soldiers marching in the street. Everyone thinks she is a bit odd when she mentions saying the Pledge of Allegiance first think before classes.

Tammy learns she is a time traveler through her friends in the enchanted land of Kira. Tammy's mission is go back in time because Thomas Paine never wrote Common Sense which was a catalyst in motivating the colonies to start the war for Independence. Our heroine is brave and accepts her duties as a time traveler. She takes the ever lively, talking Cedric (a mongoose) and Zeke (a opossum) with her as well as King Alfred of Kira in mouse form. There are other brief stops she needs to make in the years before the war to nudge events along.

Reynold Jay has another amazing winner. This is another incredible read for children. It is not only an engaging story but can help them learn about our country's history.

This book added by the author. It is book 2 in the Wurtherington Diary series. The back cover is presented by the author.
Follow alongside of ten-year-old Tammy Wurtherington, the little doll girl from River Falls, Ohio in this exciting new adventure that is sure to delight any youngster. Her cute associates, Cedric the Mongoose, Zeke the orphaned opossum, and Alfred the mouse accompany her in this trip through history in which they must see that the space-time continuum is maintained and the Declaration of Independence is signed on July Fourth, 1776. The emphasis is on telling a spell binding story that will leave any reader with a firm understanding of the events that led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the reasons for the Revolutionary War.
The reader will be alongside of the leaders of the Revolutionary War as they reach the decisions that will make them true heroes in the minds of historians. Tammy becomes a part of the rebel minutemen and joins the spy network that led to Paul Revere's famous ride in which he declared, "The British Coming!" Ride along with Tammy and Paul Revere and then witness her account of "The Shot Heard Around the World?" in Lexington. Historians have long agued as to exactly who fired that first shot that began the Revolution War and Tammy's accounting settles the issue for all time.
You will be there on a hot summer day in Independence Hall when the Committee of Five, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Ben Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston are nominated to write the Declaration of Independence. Take part in the discussions during the three weeks in which they created what many believe to be the most important words in the history of the English language. The reader will be see how Tammy assisted Betsy Ross and George Washington in creating the first American flag. And exactly how did that crack in the Liberty Bell occur?
Whether you are a young reader or a parent/educator, everyone will enjoy this remarkable tale of a wonderful little girl who became a legend in her efforts to "nudge" history and see that the American Revolution began with out a hitch. ( )
