We took a long time reading this because we stopped and read other books along the way. This made a nice "spine", or jumping off point for other topics. The author treated both George's with respect and I thought it balanced a fair, leaving the reader to decide for themselves if they thought King George was a "bad guy" or not.

I can't decide if I like this book or The Story of Liberty by the Maestro's better as a spine. We read them both, but could easily have just used one. I think either would be fine depending on what your library has. We'll have to sit down and debate which one to use next time through.

Highly recommended for your study of the American Revolution. I read this with my 6 and 10-year-olds and it worked for both levels.
