Summary: Students in grades 6-8 love this book. Unlike most informational books that are jammed with too much info, this book tells a story of American Revolution in a most engaging way. It is full of great pictures and well paced text. It makes it ideal for a week long study of the American Revolution and our nation’s first presidents, George Washington. “George vs. George” by Rosalyn Schanzer, takes a look at the American Revolutionary war from both sides, British and American. The book’s primary focus is on the two leaders, George Washington and King George III, causes of war, major battles, affects on general population, the two armies and the outcomes.
This book is a true gem.
