America's Paul Revere does a good job detailing the adult life of Paul Revere. It is, however, told with all the energy and excitement of an Encyclopedia. I doubt that many kids would read through it but they might use it as a reference for a report. It is definitely for older readers 5th grade and up. Once again, great info but very dry and there are better options out there that might hold the young readers interest better.

Great read-aloud for the 4th of July! This 46-page book had beautiful illustrations and lots of American history details that we didn't know.

A great bit of information about Paul Revere. I agree with some other reviews that it is a bit dry for a children's book, but I greatly enjoyed it as an adult!

Her father was a probate judge in Worcester and her mother, a writer of New England reference books. Both her parents were historical enthusiasts.
