What a great way to learn about Patrick Henry! Where was he on the 29th of May? Read the book and find out! Fritz makes history come alive. Her humor and her attention to details that you never hear anywhere else make her books not to be missed! Read aloud as a family if you can.

What an interesting man, his story told engagingly and richly. I kept sharing passages with my family. The only quibble I have is with the illustrations. The thing about old-fashioned pictures is that they reinforce the idea that the past is separate, and different, and that people were more mythological than human in 'old days.' ( )

One of the best beginning biographies by a great author! ( )

I thought this was a very insightful book. However, it is a little dry at times. I think it is appropriate for 5th graders because it is fairly long and dry. It can be very encouraging to students to know about someone who people did not think would amount to much but did. ( )
