This is a really good book. It's not just a kids' book; if you're a grown-up who, like me, basically learned that the American Revolution was Bunker Hill and Washington Crossing the Delaware, this book will fill in some gaps really nicely.

I got it for my son, and at 5 years old he's too little for it. And then I really enjoyed it and can answer a lot of his questions about GW and the Continental Army.
