My son Ian just finished reading a book titled The First Shot written by Stanley Harris. This is a great book for anyone in 5th-7th that is going to be studying or is interested in American History, (which we are this year).. He LOVED it..
Eleven-year old Charles Miller goes back in time to the Battle of Lexington in 1775. His adventure begins when he is visited by Ben Sampson, also eleven, who lives in 1775. Charles meets Ben's fahter, Paul Revere, John Hancock, Sam Adams and Captain John Parker during a time of tension, danger and excitement as the Minuteman await the approaching Redcoats. Charles is a witness to the Battle as he solves one of the greatest mysteries of American history-who fired the shot that began the Battle of Lexington....The First Shot.
This book is available to order from The Blue Bunny, just give us a call.
