In contrast to a traditional historical fiction story, Woodruff's George Washington Socks presents the American Revolution to students in a unique way: modern day children experience the revolution by traveling back in time via a rowboat. Because the war is viewed through the eyes of 21st century children, it should be more relatable to students. For instance, there's a point in the story where the children share bubble gum and videogames with the 18th century characters, and their reactions are quite funny. This book is lots of fun and should be great for reluctant readers.
