Reviews :

Carolyn Mott Ford (Children's Literature)
The story of the life and famous ride of Paul Revere may seem just more dry history to many children, but this author’s approach keeps readers turning the pages to see what happens next. Among the facts, readers will find many fascinating stories. The details of Revere’s silversmith business include the making of a silver collar for a man’s pet squirrel. Revere was a very resourceful man and found many ways to support his growing family, including the whittling of false teeth from hippopotamus tusks. Sometimes Revere was forgetful, and he often made mistakes; nonetheless, he served to warn his countrymen of the enemy’s approach and, for this, he has been immortalized. While students may think that the country’s early heroes were perfect, Fritz gives the reader a healthy dose of reality. This book takes a good-natured and humorous look at some of his foibles; and, yet, shows how Paul Revere persevered--a fitting lesson to go along with the history. 1996 (orig. 1973), Paper Star/Putnam/Putnam & Grosset Group, $6.99. Ages 7 to 11.
