Kids’ chapter book set in China i Name that Book (oktober 2018)
Children's chapter book about kid on the Yangtze i Name that Book (februari 2013)


I truly enjoyed this historical non-fiction book about the massive efforts, time, planning and finances it took to create the bronze horse that Leonardo so desperately desired to place in Milan. There is a lot of history presented in a way that older elementary and middle school students could appreciate. It would definitely be appropriate for teaching an art OR history lesson. In fact, this book would lend itself well across the curriculum for other areas, such as Science, for STEM education regarding the engineering of the actual horse statue itself. This story is not dry. There is a lot of emotion portrayed in the stories of all who helped to create Leonardo's dream to come true.… (mer)

George Washington Allen, a boy who never gives up until he finds out what he wants to know, is determined to learn all there is to know about his namesake, including what the first president ate for breakfast!

Only 32 pages long, but clever, witty, and incisive. I particularly like the discussion of the evidence for the Brendan voyage and how, until 1960, the evidence for the Leif Ericsson voyage was no more than traditional tales, until the archaeological discoveries. The illustrations are rather clever, and obviously inspired by the Irish decorated manuscripts, of which the most famous is the book of Kells.

Everyone has a mother. Even George Washington. But Mary Washington is nothing like you'd think! She hates to dress up. And she always thinks she knows what's best for George. After all, she's his mother! You can read more about her in this true story by Jean Fritz.
