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.)

    1. I think your students would like it. Haven't they read Bomb and Lincoln's Grave Robbers by the same author?
