Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This hands-on guide to the American Revolution has plenty of interactive features that enliven the historical setting. Lift-the-flaps provide details on the “Causes of the War” (such as the Stamp Act and Sugar Act); envelopes contain removable, fictionalized letters written by soldiers, their family members and other witnesses to historical events; and a section about the drafting of the Declaration of Independence includes a foldout facsimile of the original document. Major battles and figures are highlighted, including “Unsung Heroes” such as Phillis Wheatley, Abigail Adams and other “Women of the Revolution.” Ages 8–up. (June)
