This was such a fun and education read. This semi-graphic novel combines illustrations and text to education young children on the Civil War. The book reads as if targeted for children ages 7+, however it doesn't feel dumbed down or anything of that manner that might detract from it's educational merit.
We get a presentation of events and then followed by an illustrated story that incorporates what was just read. My absolute favorite was the map of the U.S. at the time and the war's timeline; it presented key points that were easy to follow without becoming boring or tedious. If you're looking for a fun, educational read, my inner child recommends this one.
Rating 5 out of 5
