Children can look at the War in context of specific themes as well as chronologically. This is a nonfiction product that allows for reading and hands-on learning.

Recommended Age: read together: 9 to 13; read yourself: 10 and up

Interest Level: 9 and up

Young Reader Reaction: My neighbor's child loved all the goodies in the box.

Adult Reader Reaction: Everything about this kit is excellent. The booklet that comes with the kit is filled with solid information and the interactive pieces are also well done.

Pros: Bring history to life with this book/activity combo. Kinesthetic learners (students who need to touch things) will find this engaging and helpful for learning history.

Cons: The only problem is that there is a potential choking hazard because of some of the small interactive parts. Keep this away from small children.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This is an excellent resource. I doubt a library will carry it because of all the "parts."

If You Liked This Book, Try: RED THUNDER; SECRETS, SPIES, AND SCOUNDRELS AT YORKTOWN   A HORSE'S TALE; A COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG ADVENTURE   GEORGE WASHINGTON'S UNSUNG HEROES

Educational Themes: Kids can explore the personalities and events of US colonial history. With maps, replica historical documents, and "personal letters" there are opportunities to do a lot more than just memorize dates.
