I love it! Apr 10, 2004
It was a really good book. I could read it 10000000 times and still not predict the next page. It was so much fun to read, and it shows that human nature hasn't changed at all since then. I'm a big fan of the show and I loved reading and watching it!

This book is one of the greatest! (Along with the second one in the series) If you've ever seen the PBSkids show, (I watch it every day!), you'll love these books! They help you understand the shows a lot better. In this book, it contains the first three episodes of the series. Ok, heres the summary part. Its kinda weird, because on the site they say James is 14 and Sarah is 15, on here they say they are BOTH 15. Oh well, I prefer them both being 15.Ok, here it goes: 15 year old Sarah Phillips is a green-eyed redheaded tall pretty daughter of a Major for the King. Meaning she is loyal to the crown. But her father left England to scout new lands in the Ohio Territorys. (...).
Intolerable Acts-In this episode, the four are staying at Phillis Wheatleys home, hiding from the British redcoats. But the Quartering Act is passed, and soldiers are staying at Ms. Wheatleys home! Sarah is confused at how Phillis is somebodys property, its an outrage! James and Henri find a way to get the word out that the Intolerable Acts were passed, but not without putting them all in grave danger. A danger that only SARAH could free them from, but she has to choose. Lie to a commanding officer in the King's Navy and save her friends, or rat them out and have them all sent to jail? (...)
The third episode thingy, I forgot the title-Sarah and Henri head for Boston to deliver supplies and meet up with Abigail Adams. James stays in Philadelphia to report on the continental congress thingy. But to him, theres an EVEN BIGGER story going on! After the three witnessed a merchant sailor get tarred and feathered after doing nothing wrong, James thinks of it as a patriotic and humorous act, one that he wants to report on. Will he learn his lesson? And will Sarah and Henri get the supplies to their destination safely?
Fun way to learn! Jan 30, 2004
Wow! A book that is fun for kids to read and educational. My 10 year old son really liked this book. It has sparked his interest in the history of our country. I will definately be buying more in this series.
My 5yr son is LOVING this book... Nov 14, 2003
This is a great read-aloud chapter book for those kids ready to hear more than they can read. The text flows smooothly so reading it aloud is easy. No he said, she said text commonly found in easier chapter books.
My son loves the series on TV but we don't always get to see it and a lot of the story line is missed so this is helping to fill in the gaps. And while I agree, it is 21st century characters, it still does bring history to life especially for the younger grades. I think the grade level of 5-8 is high. I think that age group would be bored with this. Although the writing is at that level which is making it enjoyable for me to read.
I highly recommend it as a read aloud with grades K-3. It is a great introduction to the American Revolution filled with enough action and suspense to keep my 5yr asking for one more chapter please???
