King George: What was his problem? by Steve Sheinkin
This summer I discovered Steve Sheinkin and read half a dozen of his books. Two are focused on the American Revolution. I plan to share King George this week and The Notorious Benedict Arnold next week.
King George: What was his problem? explains the events that led up to the conflict without talking down to the audience or assuming that the reader already knows about U. S. History. I found it entertaining as well as educational. I would definitely read it aloud to my class if I taught fifth grade. (We teach U. S. History in fifth grade in our state.)
