I wanted a book I could share with my fourth grade students in reading that could enhance their study of the Civil War. The story is engaging and I think they will gain a perspective that textbooks cannot offer.
This brief book is performed by a variety of voices, which I found to make the presentation interesting. The performance puts the story in context and presents the war in a realistic fashion. I found this informative and historically interesting.
Having this on audio, and having our 6th grader read the book along with the audio playing made the book come to life, and the characters come to life. The book did a great job of showing many different perspectives.
