This book is about how America was established beginning with the 13 colonies, the formation of the towns and lands, and their life there. It goes into the people's daily tasks, what they wore, all of the mini wars fought and documents signed. It talks about the ride of Paul Revere, weapons used, the different flags, the Declaration of Independence, and the importance of war for our freedom. It gives lots of illustrations and fun facts to help kids be able to relate to what actually happened better. This could be a great lesson plan were kids take a time period from this book, make their costume, their script, and paint a setting and then perform a mini play infront of the class about one of the important events that happened in the book. The theme of this book is war, culture, and history.

I wish I had had this great novel when I was in grade school! Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce do a wonderful job summarizing the details before, during and after the American Revolution. The guide is written so even a seven year-old can understand the main points and important people who helped shape our country. In the back of the book it even has a timeline, tips on how to do more research (where to go, choosing materials, how to write in your own words instead of copying) and other resources with more details on the American Revolution (library, websites, museums, videos). This is fantastic because the book only skims the surface of the events and people. ( )

This is a great companion the the fiction book Revolutionary War on Wednesday by the same author. This is at a reading level I feel comfortable that all my students could read independently. Possibly used to tie in Literacy with the social studies study.
