Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
This book is one of the "You Choose Books," part of the "Interactive History Adventure" series. The book begins by setting the stage briefly in the summer of 1861 as the North and the South gear up to battle. The reader is offered three choices at this point: join the Union Army, join the Confederate Army, or watch the battle as a civilian bystander. After making the choice, the reader is sent on an adventure with short episodes followed by choices such as "grab your pistol" or "lie still" following a battle. Readers are directed to the next section of the book that will continue their story. Once they complete the story, readers can go back to the beginning and take another path through history. The writing is lively, and readers are plunged into battle scenes and realistic dilemmas. The text is accompanied by illustrations and especially helpful photographs from the Civil War that greatly enhance understanding. Back matter includes a timeline, reading suggestions, internet sites, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
