Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Revere: Boston Patriot (Childhood of Famous Americans Series.)?
Easy but engaging writing! Mar 9, 2010
I just finished reading this book... as an adult, the writing seemed very simple & even simplistic, but I still couldn't put it down. The black-and-white illustrations are just right to help you imagine the story as you read. Longfellow's poem about Paul Revere's ride is in the last chapter, along with a description of Paul's ride. Except for that poem & description, the book deals with Paul's life from 9 to around 19, when he began carrying secret messages for the Patriots.
The copy I read was checked out from my library, but I will most definitely buy this book in the very near future! I can see it being pulled off our shelves again & again to be read for fun, not just as a homeschool assignment. I know that my 2nd grade daughter will enjoy reading this book for herself, and our younger boys will enjoy having it read to them.
I highly recommend this book to fellow homeschoolers studying the Revolutionary War. Even teen-agers would enjoy reading this as a "break" from heavier reading assignments.
good book as are all the "Childhood of Famous Americans" Series Nov 2, 2009
Good book, my 8 year old likes any of the books in this series, and with the public schools not teaching our children American History yet (my older child is in 6th grade and still hasn't had a class in American History), to me this is filling in a gap left by the public school system. They need to learn about all the patriots that pledged their life, liberty and sacred honor to make our country great!
Great series... Jun 25, 2008
As a homeschooling family, we are always looking for a book that is both educational and fun. This series has all of the aspects needed to make history fun for kids. My son ended up with most of the books. Anything having to do with our nation's gov, presidents and such was always a draw for him and these books kept him interested! He has now passed his collection down to his little sister.
Augusta Stevenson is a great children's book writer Dec 28, 1998
This book was my daughter's all time favorite. It is easy to read and provides an introduction to the childhood of this famous American. This book is fiction, allthough based on fact, and is fast paced, exciting reading for your 7-10 year old. We have purchased all the titles by this author!
