TITLE: And Then What Happened, Paul Revere?
AUTHOR: Jean Fritz 
ILLUSTRATOR: Margot Tomes

ISBN: 0698113519
Everyone knows about Paul Revere's Big Ride to Lexington. But not everyone knows the harrowing details and narrow escapes that occurred along the way. And id you know that Paul Revere forgot his spurs on his famous ride? Or that he whittled false teeth to make extra money? Or that he had really sloppy handwriting? Or that he had sixteen children?

MY REVIEW: 

I read this biography aloud to my children. It is recommended for ages 8-11, but even my 4 year-old enjoyed it.

Fritz presents factual information in such a way that it is entertaining and fun! We enjoyed learning more about Revere's involvement with the Sons of Liberty and, of course, all the details surrounding his famous ride to Lexington.

We loved this biography, and we plan to read more of Fritz's biographical series! This book makes a great complement to your American history studies!

MY RATING:

5 stars! We loved it! Highly recommended!!

This book qualifies as:
