Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These books focus on an event in the early years of two famous Americans. In the first offering, a young King was told by his best friend that they could no longer play together because " colored and white can't mix." This experience inspired him to try to "change the rules." With lots of texture and touches of charcoal, the painterly illustrations have a nostalgic quality that effectively sets this story in the past. Winter describes how Revere and his friends started a bell-ringing club, voted on their own rules, and entered into a contract with a church to provide their services. This responsibility and dedication to helping his town were lessons that "gave Paul Revere ideas about how to become one of America's greatest patriots." Dodson's appealing artwork depicts the action and presents scenes of 18th-century Boston. Both titles feature short sentences and a simple vocabulary. Two additional purchases.-Gina Powell, Hidenwood Elementary School, Newport News, VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
