My 8yo son loves history and is devouring this book. I highly recommend. This book is really exciting and I (mom) am enjoying it too. We use it for read aloud time and independent reading. As soon as I finish this review I will be ordering more in the series, per my sons request.
If you have sons or grandsons who love to read—or who don’t love to read but who will be swept up by real history—check this out. In many schools these days, students aren’t being taught about the individual battles and struggles of our nation’s history, including Gettysburg.
These books allow kids to click on the links, so they can actually hear Churchill himself giving his mighty WW2 speeches, or watching a B17 take off, etc. Here’s to boys—and GIRLS!—reading history, if for no other reason, so we're not condemned to repeat it.
