Adler, David A. HEROES OF THE REVOLUTION. Il. by Donald A. Smith.
ISBN 0-8234-1471 X. New York: Holiday House, 2003. 32 pp. $16.95. The 12
heroes of the American Revolution, both well known and little known,
described in this book include women and minorities. The facts are
briefly and simply stated, offering just enough of a glimpse that
children might be inspired to look further into the life of each hero. A
teacher could use this book as a stimulating introduction to research.
The author's notes and a time line of important dates and facts are
helpful. A good bibliography completes the book. Ages 8-11. Reviewed by
