Through Longfellow' s engaging rhymes, children follow Paul Revere on his fateful ride through the Massachusetts countryside on the eve of the first battle of the American Revolution. Spectacular illustrations by Jeffrey Thompson create an amazing depth and a shimmering, mysterious feel that enhance the unfolding drama of the immortal poem. A historical note clarifies the facts, and a map shows Revere' s route.

Review: Potato: A Tale From The Great Depression

User Review  - Dorian - Goodreads

This is a good book for teaching the Great Depression (or then vs. now) to younger grades, but the ending is just a big letdown. I'm using it for a Kindergarten lesson because its language and format are appropriate, but I wish that the ending was different. Read full review

I thought this was a cute story. It would be a good story to start off with if you were trying to teach younger children about the great depression. Read full review
