Revolutionary War (Battle Box Series)

Summary:

This novelty kit contains a 64-page book about the Revolutionary War and some war memorabilia, such as maps, badges, coins, reproductions of soldiers' letters, and other materials. Children can look at the War in context of specific themes as well as chronologically.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Bring history to life with this book/activity combo. Kinesthetic learners (students who need to touch things) will find this engaging and helpful for learning history.

Content Awareness Factors:

The only problem is that there is a potential choking hazard because of some of the small interactive parts. Keep this away from small children.


Little Kid Reaction

My neighbor's child loved all the goodies in the box.

Adult Reader Reaction

Everything about this kit is excellent. The booklet that comes with the kit is filled with solid information and the interactive pieces are also well done.

Type of Book:
This is a nonfiction product that allows for reading and hands-on learning.
