Let it Begin Here!: Lexington and Concord: First Battles...
« on: November 11, 2013, 09:36:49 PM »
I bought this book for my five year-old daughter to teach her about our revolutionary heritage and because I'm worried she won't learn about it in public school- I know I didn't learn much about it.  My mother just turned 77 and remembers MUCH more about Lexington and Concord than I ever knew till I attended my first Appleseed. 

I think she's a little young for some of the book, so I summarize instead of reading what the book actually says during the scarier parts.  I think this book would be perfect for kids of "Appleseed Age" though.  Here's a link to a summary and some reviews.

I actually have some copies of this book. Bought them from discount book broker online w/ others and give them away at shoots, or donate for silent auction items. My niece actually took a copy for her grade school classroom.
