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.

Her family roots can be traced back to 1600s America; one of her great-uncles was the great historical figure and leader of the Sons of Liberty, Sam Adams. Her father was a probate judge in Worcester and her mother, a writer of New England reference books. Both her parents were historical enthusiasts.More about Esther Forbes...
