Once again Sue Kilbride has hit a homerun with her historical fiction book series! Today’s review is of The Revolutionary War Adventure from the Our America Series. I was excited to read this book because I loved her previous books so much. We find brother and sister Finn and Ginny once again traveling back in time in search of their parents who are stuck back there somewhere. This time they end up in the Revolutionary War period. The time travel remote keeps taking them to different places and events of the Revolutionary War. Every place they go the twins find relatives who help them and let them be involved in the war effort. Some of the things they do are: witness the Boston Tea Party, travel on Paul Revere’s ride, see the first fighting at Lexington, hear the Declaration of Independence being read, cross the Delaware, and witness the surrender for the victory of the Patriots.  We learn a lot about the terrible conditions back then–the illness and insufficient supplies that the soldiers had.  It gives us a greater appreciation for all they did to fight for our freedom. Finn and Ginny don’t just meet relatives, but also some of the other great heroes of the war such as Paul Revere, John Hancock, and George Washington.  I love the “extras” that you find in the book: The Concord Hymn by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Timeline of the Revolutionary War events, reprint of the Declaration of Independence, bibliography, and the Historical Notes where Susan shares about which characters in the book were her relatives and what events and conversations were actual and which ones she took liberty with. The Revolutionary War Adventure is well-written, fast-paced, and exciting to read.  Susan is a great writer. It’s 120 pages, so not overwhelming for younger readers. I would recommend these books for ages 10-15. They are definitely a great supplement to early American History studies!
