John, Paul, George & Ben by Lane Smith
Five paw prints. What a fun book! This book "explains" about important people and important events during Colonial America in relation to the American Revolution. First, we learn about the young lives of John, Paul, George, and Ben (oh, we learn about Tom too, but he's too INDEPENDENT to be part of the title) and how they became important men as adults. Then we learn the "real" story of why these men are important. Finally, there is a test to see if you were paying attention to the story. Don't worry, it's a fun test that should be easy. Have I mentioned this is a fun book? I love American history, but I realize many people think history is boring. If more people read books like this, I bet they would look for more books to help them understand the silly fiction from the fun facts.
