Having had the privilege of reading a number of Bolte's riviting stories of young, American heroines, two years ago, I couldn't WAIT until they went to press, so they could be used in my fifth grade classroom, in conjunction with our American History curriculum. It's important that young people understand that adults aren't the only ones responsible for the building of America; they, too, made positive differences then... & can do so even now! Don't just limit these stories to American History, however. The accounts can also be used to discuss, teach, or write about character building. Read the stories aloud then discuss how lifeskills such as initiative, perseverance, honesty, courage, fairness, trustworthiness, etc. were exhibited. Challenge students to not only see but believe that: DOING THE RIGHT THING, is ALWAYS the RIGHT THING!
