A Good Way to Learn about History

This is a good solid book with plenty of well-drawn black and white pictures to help the reader follow the story line. It tells an interesting true story of a young woman who dresses as a man in order to join the army during the American Revolution. The book also introduces the reader to various historical characters of the time, such as Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. This is an easy book for young children to read, and could be a good starting point in getting a child interested in history. Let's hope that it is reprinted again soon as it is an excellent book and is worth having on any bookshelf, private or public.
