Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6–These entries in the popular series continue to bring history alive. Each title focuses on one event or period told from the point of view of an individual participant. In Tea Party, readers assume the role of a poor young man living in Boston who is too short to join the British Army; in China, readers learn what it was like to be imprisoned and then forced to work on the Great Wall for five years; and in Roman Soldier, readers role is that of a young man who wants to escape his dull life and see the world. The books are filled to the page edges with facts and gory details about the harshness of conditions and severity of life in these times. The illustrations are light and comical, and deftly balance the blood-and-guts focus of the texts. Purchase where other titles in the series are in demand, or where books for reluctant readers are needed.–Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN

What a fun way to learn history!
Darlene
My kids love having this book read to them, and they love learning about how things actually were back in the 1700s.

I read this non-fiction book aloud to my children.

What a fun way to learn history! This book was hilarious!! I am so impressed with the content, and it gives kids a real feel for what life was like back in this time period.

We learned about the events leading up to why the Boston Tea Party took place and how London responded when the news of the tea party reached Britain.

We loved this book so much that I have bought nearly every book in this series. This is a great addition to your American history studies!

Format: Paperback
This is an entertaining look at the Boston Tea Party, full of cartoonish illustrations that will engage young readers. We use this more as just fun than for any serious educational purpose. I have a son who likes to draw, and he likes to imitate the illustration style of these "you wouldn't want to be..." books.

This is a wonderful add-on to any elementary course on the buildup to the Revolutionary War. My kids love having this book read to them, and they love learning about how things actually were back in the 1700s.
