Betsy Ross: Designer of Our Flag Reviews

    This book, true to the series it is in, takes place only in the childhood of Betsy Ross. I think young female elementary students would enjoy reading about Betsy Ross and what it was like to grow up in the 1700s. Although it is listed as a biography, it seems more like historical fiction in that it has a lot of dialogue, which the author couldn't possibly know took place. It reminds me of the Laura Ingalls Wilder series.

    I think this book would be a really great book to start students off on biographies. This in particular book series does a really good job making these autobiographies sound like stories that will capture young readers' attention. I don't think there would be a lot of boys who would enjoy this story but there are a lot of other identifiable male figures that would grab their attention. It's a good series to introduce American History and literature.

    Maylin had to read a book for another book report and I always take this as an opportunity to read the book too so I can help her by asking questions. I really liked this book because it was written as if Betsy Ross wrote it herself. It was fun to read the events in her life, reminded me of a Little house series

    Betsy Ross knew how to sew and George Washington asked her to create the flag of the United States of America. She was the best sewer in the history. The real flag that Betsy created was redesigned to the flag now with the stars and stripes.

    I read this one with my 9 year old son. I knew he was enjoying it when he asked me to keep reading at the end of each chapter.

    This is a great book about America's history. It was about the designer of the Americans flag. This is why I liked this book.
