Summary: This is the story of the battle of the Alamo. The details are in the illustrations more than in the text.
Personal Reaction: I thought this was a good summary of what happened at the Alamo. I am not a fan of graphic novels, but I can see why they would interest children.

Classroom Extension ideas:
1. I would have students choose a small portion of the story and write a description of the scene. I feel this would help strengthen their reading skills for traditional novels.
2. I would have students choose a character from the book to research further and either write a report or draw a graphic report about the characters life.

It was a fun way to explain the historic Battle of the Alamo to students.
Classroom Extensions:
#1: I would use this story to teach the Battle of the Alamo.
#2: I would have the students do some research on the Alamo museum. ( )

This is a very grfic depiction that will surley educate children whom wish to learn the history of the Alamo. I am from Texas and enjoyed this book very much.

This book is excellant but because of its nature should be view with an adult for explanations.

I would definetly include this book in a library of history.
