Review by Dustie
This series is really fun. I love the unique topics of the various book. The stories of each individual in this particular book are incredibly moving and inspiring. While they are engaging enough to keep the attention of older children (or parents), they are written in such a way that is easy to understand. Because some of the topics are difficult and involve war, I think this book would be most appropriate for kids who are at least 7. However, others may have different ideas for their own children.
This book is great for independent reading, and it has definitions for words that may be unfamiliar or difficult for younger readers to understand. It would make a great read-aloud or morning basket addition. These stories would also be really fun to include with corresponding history lessons, and there’s even a list in the back of the book that notes potential books to pair each chapter with.
Overall, I highly recommend this entire series of books for every homeschool library. They’re such a fun way to learn bits of history.
a great addition to an awesome book!
Review by sara
Our family absolutely loves these books and we are very thankful that they have audio to go along with them! They start out as read alouds and then become readers as my kids get older. I appreciate that audio is available for when mommy needs a rest day, my voice is shot, or I have a reader that is not yet confident enough to tackle the books just yet on their own! our kiddos love mysteries and spies so this was a great book that kept everyone entertained! I recommend.
Review by SarahT
This audiobook is just fantastic! Not only does it allow for independence, but students will also want to listen to the stories of the spies in history again and again. We had just finished the America's Story series, and the section on spies during the War of Independence was of great interest to my kids. Would highly recommend!
