R without getting out of bed a rocking chair with a fan over it to keep flies away and a windmill to turn his roast meat on its spit Aside from being a mad of ideas he was an ambassador This month while the Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge has been focusing on nonfiction I decided to finally sit down and read a stack of the late Jean Fritz's books about the history of the United States In total I read 8 titles And Then What Happened Paul Revere illustrated by Margot Tomes 1973 Why Don't You Get a Horse Sam Adams illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman 1974 Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May illustrated by Margot Tomes 1975 What's the Big Idea Ben Franklin illustrated by Margot Tomes 1976 Will You Sign Here John Hancock illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman 1976 Can't You Make Them Behave King George illustrated by Tomie dePaola 1977 Where Do You Think You're Going Christopher Columbus illustrated by Margot Tomes 1980 Shh We're Writing the Constitution illustrated by Tomie dePaola 1987All of these except the last one are biographies of key figures in early America In each biography Fritz focuses on a representative uirk of each individual she profiles which serves as a unifying thread for the important events of that person's life For John Hancock whose signature looms so large on the declaration of independence this is his desire for attention and the ostentatious ways he went about trying to get it For Sam Adams it is his refusal to learn to ride a horse for Columbus his terrible sense of direction and tendency to stumble upon good fortune and for King George his blind paternalism toward the colonists even when they have made very clear their disdain for him In the last book Shh We're Writing the Constitution Fritz tells the story of the difficulties and compromises that occurred among different historical figures as the US Constitution slowly took shape In both types of books Fritz focuses heavily not just on historical events but on the personalities of the key figures who contributed to the outcomes of these events Fritz does not simply idolize these men for their greatness; instead she shows both how they were ordinary stubborn foolish insufferable laughable uirky selfish etc and extraordinary No one is treated as all good or all bad but instead they are portrayed as very human For a reader like me who reads books mainly for their characters I found this approach refreshing and endearing Whereas I struggle to focus on lengthy informational texts that try to drill details into my memory the characters in each of these books were fascinating to me As I read in the evenings I kept saying to my husband Hey did you know and I never knew that None of these books is enough on its own to convey all the details of the discovery of America the signing of the Declaration of Independence the Revolutionary War or the drafting of the Constitution but every single one of them provides context for understanding those events on a personal and emotional level The straightforward facts which are included alongside the biographical details are made memorable by Fritz's engaging and humorous writing style and everything she writes about comes to life in a way that school textbooks never couldThey would make wonderful read alouds for elementary kids who are studying colonial America but they are just as entertaining as independent reads for older readers who want a refresher Also wonderful are the illustrations for each volume There are three illustrators for these books Margot Tomes Trina Schart Hyman and Tomie dePaola Though all three artists' styles suit the mood and content of the books my personal favorite is Hyman Her pictures have the most detail and in my opinion the most personality Tomes is a close second I especially like the way she draws children but found that I associated dePaola too much with other books and other genres to feel like he was a good fit for this subject matter Still I think the designer for these books did a great job of keeping a consistent look to the whole series that places the reader in a particular frame of mind regardless of who drew the picturesNow that I have read all of these books I understand why they were so popular in my school library during childhood and why I hear so much about them in homeschooling circles I plan to use them with my kids when we study US history and I hope they will learn to love history as I never did as a child by observing how much fun Fritz clearly had writing about it This review also appears on my blog Read at Home Mom Abuse of Power - Revenge of the Karinovs except the last one are biographies of key figures in CLANS AND CHIEFS - Celtic Tribalism in Scotland early America In Strapdown Inertial Navigation Technology, 2nd Edition (IEE Radar, Sonar, Navigation and Avionics Series) each biography Fritz focuses on a representative uirk of The Basics of Public Budgeting and Financial Management: A Handbook for Academics and Practitioners each individual she profiles which serves as a unifying thread for the important FSOT Study Guide Review: Test Prep & Practice Test Questions for the Written Exam & Oral Assessment on the Foreign Service Officer Test (English Edition) events of that person's life For John Hancock whose signature looms so large on the declaration of independence this is his desire for attention and the ostentatious ways he went about trying to get it For Sam Adams it is his refusal to learn to ride a horse for Columbus his terrible sense of direction and tendency to stumble upon good fortune and for King George his blind paternalism toward the colonists Sutters Glück even when they have made very clear their disdain for him In the last book Shh We're Writing the Constitution Fritz tells the story of the difficulties and compromises that occurred among different historical figures as the US Constitution slowly took shape In both types of books Fritz focuses heavily not just on historical Néa: roman events but on the personalities of the key figures who contributed to the outcomes of these Twice Tempted events Fritz does not simply idolize these men for their greatness;
