Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fun story - one grammar issue.  Jun 30, 2008
Have enjoyed reading many of the books in this series aloud to my 5/6 year old. This one was especially fun to read after Ben Franklin, 'cause in the book young Betsy actually goes to visit old Ben the printer.

Even though the books are fictional, for the most part, they develop in the child a sense of familiarity with the character, and an interest in learning more about them the next time they encounter them. Most, like this, are full of (invented) dialogue, making them feel very alive.
However, one minor thing got under my skin: in the dialogue the author tried to reproduce old Quaker English, but apparently wasn't familiar with the grammar- she uses only "Thee" and not "Thou" or "Thy". Don't let this deter you from enjoying this fun book, but I recommend going through and correcting it before reading it aloud. (Or letting your older child attempt the corrections herself.)
 
Childrens history books  Feb 13, 2008
I think that these books are a great way to get kids interested in the people who helped shape our country to what it is today, our freedom, power and our faith. It is simple, easy reading for about second-third grade beginning level. They are full of fun interesting things about the person. I think the whole set of these books should be in every library especially at elementary schools. I myself have enjoyed them and learned alot I didn't learn when I was in school.
 
Betsy Ross, Young American  Apr 15, 2007
Bety Ross, disigner of our flag, was about the CHILDHOOD of Betsy Ross, not her whole life, as I anticipated. I thought this book was going to be mostly about when Betsy was a grown up not when she was a child. However Ann Weil did give a lot of interesting details about Betsy's childhood.
 
Betsy Ross: Designer of Our Flag  Nov 4, 2003
The author does a good job at portraying what type of a person Betsy Ross was. It is written in a story form which is better because I think children will be more interested in reading it. There isn't much information about her creating the flag until the last chapter however it is enough to give children an idea of what she did for our nation.
 
My First Book Report  Oct 22, 2000
I liked the book because it made me excited to learn about history. I felt like I was her-- when she was happy, I was happy. She did alot of neat things in her life. She liked boats and sewing. I learned about Besty Ross.
