    So educational

    This book is great for children to learn about Washington in our history of the United States. They can so much in this book.

    Beautifully done.

    My six year old daughter loves this book. The illustrations are perfect and the story brings the 'crossing' to life. So many times the facts get in the way of the story. The author, bogged down in the facts tells a dry story lacking the emotional impact the events deserve. Lynne Cheney captures the spirit and awe of this event but in language that children and adults alike can respond. No one who reads this will walk away unmoved.

    Great Christmas Present!

    I'm so happy to see such a beautiful book educating America's young minds about our fascinating history. My children love the story and the beautiful paintings by Peter Fiore that accompany Mrs. Cheney's prose. I'm sure we will enjoy reading this together for many years to come. I've bought a copy for everyone in my family!

    Terrific in All Respects

    My son thoroughly enjoys this book, from the artwork to the story itself. This book helped initiate him into the passion that is America's history. I hope Mrs. Cheney writes more of these fine books.

    AMAZING BOOK!

    Our entire family loves this book. We are homeschoolers and used this book when studying the American Revolution. The paintings are absolutely wonderful. After reading each page we discussed the paintings. We also liked the quotes found on each page. This is a definite must in any library!

    A Must for School Libraries & librarians to learn from!

    Good for ages 5-10. Great for Christmas and for all of the holiday season. If our schools had more books like this instead of rewritten history our children would learn to respect the sacrifices made that make this a great country. All my kids enjoyed this and their friends too. The illustrations are fantastic. I also enjoyed Mrs. Cheney's other fine books.

    'Lifting Patriotic Spirits'

    What a delightful and inspiring book for patriots of all ages! Mrs. Cheney's retelling of Washington's battleplan for Trenton was full of insights into the personal lives of those who were there. The beautiful illustrations captured the spirit of patriotism in fine detail. It was wonderful to have the suggestion of planning a time at Christmas to read the story aloud as a family tradition. The listeners in our library will be challenged to become the patriots we need for the 21st century.
