My boys loved this book. They are 6 and 8, and in first and third grades. First they chuckled over the illustrations, which really drew them in. They loved the prose of the story, each of the boys enjoy poetry. The book really touched home when they heard the Revolutionary War part. They have an ancestor who fought in that War, and have been to visit the monument in Oriskany, NY. It is so important that they don't take this country for granted and lose it's history. We talked about the different things that led to the War. They know they have relatives who came on the Mayflower...yes John Alden. This book brought home a lot of things we had talked about in the past. They asked if the tea was drinkable once it was in the ocean...don't think they will forget that point. I can't wait until we can share more of the Ellis books...so important to share how we got our freedoms. I received this book through the Publisher Regnery Kids, and was not required to give a positive review.

This is a wonderful book. The illustrations bring the text to life and the attention to detail is amazing. The author provides young readers a great introduction to the American Revolution, covering important moments like the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's midnight ride, George Washington at Valley Forge, and many more.
