Uses simple language that allows children in primary grades to discover on their own the facts about Sam's colorful life.
The information presented is well researched and eschews speculation. The book provides a platform for educators and parents to emphasize values like standing up for what you believe and life-long learning.

"Fun With History" 5 stars
This book is supposed to be for ages 5-7. I would like to expand that to include all elementary school students.
I have to admit that I did not know anything about Sam Houston. Every child-not just those in Texas-should read this book. The illustrations are bright and show action. The words are easy to sound out. The font is large.
The "educational part" of this book is hidden behind a great story-sort of like hiding your child's medicine in his drink.
