This is a picture book biography; however, it's fiction based. It's an awesome way to introduce the American Revolution and how average Americans helped in the Revolution. ( )

Redcoats and Petticoats is a story about a young boy and the influence that war has on his family. It is good for elementary aged students who are currently learning about the Revolutionary War. As with many other historical fiction books, it is great for teaching children about a tough time through a relatable and less violent way.

This book is based on true events that occurred during the American Revolution on Long Island from 1778-1784. Young Thomas runs strange errands for his mother who seems to have lost her mind since her husband was captured by British soldiers. She spends her days hanging laundry that already appears to be clean and dry, but Thomas doesn’t realize until the war is over that he and his mother were acting as spies for George Washington and actually helped win the war.
