A Kat McGee Adventure
June 2, 2014
Paperback, 104 pages
Synopsis: The Fourth of July. Parades, fireworks, apple pie--and an amazing history of American freedom and revolution. Kat McGee doesn't know what she'd do without her favorite summery celebration of all things patriotic... but if she doesn't travel back in time to work her holiday-saving magic, she's going to find out--and fast. It's 1776. Thomas Jefferson has been kidnapped. The Declaration of Independence is gone. And our country's brilliant past depends on a young woman from the future, aided only by (the Statue of) Liberty, a young John Quincy Adams, and a whole lot of summer holiday spirit.
Review: This book was wonderful. At first I wasn’t sure I would enjoy it because Kat seemed like a sore loser, but as the book progressed so did Kat. Kat McGee is a young girl who wants to be the first student ambassador of the Fourth of July parade and when she loses the vote she gets very upset. With some help from her grandma and her magic Kat realizes that having a choice on who wins an election is better than being forced to do something you don’t want to. How does Kat learn this important lesson and save America? Simple: she goes back in time to save Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of independence. Along the way she meets other very important people throughout this wonderful time period such as Paul Revere and John Quincy Adams.
This book is wonderful for children who are just starting to read chapter books. It is a wonderful way to teach children about the American Revolution and what it stood for without them really realizing they are learning. I recommend this book to parents, teachers and fellow librarians alike and I would add this book to my library.
I received a free ecopy of this book from Netgalley for my honest review.
YAY – Historical fiction for younger kids! This was a great book. Ms. Riddick writes stories that are easy and fun to read. I like how she incorporated the time travel, and historical facts into this book. I really enjoyed Kat McGee and the School of Christmas Spirit. I didn’t know that there was a second in the series (this is book 3) and I saw on the publisher’s website a book 4 is planned. Good news for parents looking for a great Magic School Bus type series for their kids! I like the character of Kat McGee a lot. She is a great girl who perseveres. I also like that she meets John Quincy Adams in the book (just because I am a super American history buff). The story is packed with American history facts and kids will learn without knowing it! The cover art is pretty cool too. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
*NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
Great of ALL ages!
Kat LOVES the 4th of July with all the fireworks, ice cream contests, and parades!
And this year she is hopeful to help the Mayor Little with all of the festivities.
But when Roman Rule steps in and wins the vote to help the Mayor, Kat decides she doesn't want anything to do with the 4th.
A visit to her favorite Gram's sets her priorities straight as Gram decides to take all of the kids on a field trip to Philadelphia and "America's most historic square mile."
Gram wants to teach them the true meaning behind the 4th of July, for it is more than just fireworks, parades and apple pie.
But things go amiss as they visit the museum....
With help from Liberty, (the statue of Liberty), and through a chain of events Kat is whisked back in time to 1776 where...
Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence are missing!
Wait until you read who else helps Kat...so good!
Can they save Thomas Jefferson?
What will happen to America if they don't?
A PERFECT STORY FOR THIS WEEKEND!
A GREAT HISTORY LESSON!
A SUPER-FANTASTIC SERIES!

Democracy! Whatever! Kat McGee may love the 4th of July celebrations, but she doesn’t see what the big deal is about this voting stuff.Read more
