This book of poems was an interesting take on the revolutionary time period. I was drawn in by the title and topic. Teaching students about the past can be exciting and I thought a poem book related to that topic might be fun. After reading the book, I think I would still use it to add to the books students can pick to read during the unit I am not sure I would really focus on it as much as I would have originally thought.

This book is a collection of twenty poems for elementary aged school children. These poems aim to entertain young readers while teaching them about pioneer life, native life, and American history. Colorful illustrations accompany each poem. Mrs. Brown imparts her enthusiasm for American history by taking her class on a series of field trips to historic sites. The book also includes an extensive glossary of Colonial terms and maps of both the British Colonies and "Native Tribes and Nations."

Recommends it for: grade 3
Third grade characters share poems of their field trip to a colonial village (similar to Sturbridge or Deerfield). The poems aren't great, but the third grade voices ring true. A fun connection to the 3rd grade American History unit.

I enjoyed this book very much, especially because the students in the story were not just hearing stories about Colonial America, but they were actually experiencing it. This story can provide awesome ideas for actual lesson plans in the classroom.
