Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The folks at National Geographic have created another winning series for young readers."—Social Studies for Kids
Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson
What would it be like to be a soldier in the Revolutionary war? This book talks about all aspects of being a young soldier in the war. Each ‘chapter' is a double page spread with a large cartoon-like picture in the center of the page, information about the aspect, drawings to demonstrate the topic, and shorter paragraphs to explain more details. The chapters in this book include signing up, pay, training to fight, wearing a uniform, weapons, food, women, injuries, promotions, etc. The topics have been well researched, and accurate information is found throughout the book. Each chapter gives interesting information about soldier life. The end of the book contains a quiz to see how much information the student has learned about being a soldier, a glossary, an index, and a section on further reading. This book would be a great resource for a history class doing a unit on the Revolutionary war.
