Children's LiteratureThe life of Paul Revere is brought to light in this book from the "First Biographies" series. His birth, childhood, and work as a silversmith is described first, then his involvement with the Massachusetts army during the French and Indian War. His marriages and children are mentioned before leading into the reasons for the American Revolution. Paul's involvement in the Boston Tea Party is explained, then the details behind the famous "midnight ride." An ongoing timeline highlighting the events described on each page makes it easy for children to put each event into a chronological context. A glossary and list of books and websites for further research completes this introductory text on Paul Revere. Reproductions of pictures and paintings, as well as photographs of historical locations, aid the learning process. This book would be a good reference work for a child beginning to learn about the figures in American history. 2003, Capstone, Ages 5 to 8.
