Ariel Bradley, Spy for General Washington
by Lynda Durrant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ariel Bradley, Spy for General Washington is a short history lesson for younger children, bringing history to life in a manner that children can relate to!
Young Ariel is asked to help George Washington by going into the enemy's camp ALONE. Ariel becomes a hero in his own right. Yet as a child,in the end, he equates his mother's cobbler as a reward!
Although short and simply written, it gives today's children a role model to look to and learn from! Sometimes the best rewards are the simple things! Lynda Durrant has turned history into a fun read for kids with her easy prose that keeps things lighter than adult fiction. The glossary at the end furthers the learning experience, once again showing how important the joy of reading can be!
