Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
In this edition of the "You Choose Books" readers can discover historical events through making decisions and finding out what would have happened if they had made those choices, which lead to the events of "The Battle of the Alamo." Readers start off by learning why the Mexican army would be getting ready to fight those Texans at the Alamo. Then readers are given their first choice—to fight for Mexico or for Texas. Each path leads readers to discover what happened to various groups of people in this important battle. Readers can fight with Davy Crocket or learn how Santa Anna's men had to dig trenches, shoot cannons, or fight to get inside the Alamo. The book has many pictures showing real people, places, or scenes scattered throughout the text, which also includes additional facts related to the reader's choice and the illustration. All of the choices conclude with the overall historic explanation of what happened, a timeline, glossary, and bibliography. This is a great start for adventure seekers who want to discover the adventure in history. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
