B is for Battle Cry: A Civil War Alphabet takes readers on a journey into one of the most important chapters of our nation's past. The Civil War was one of the bloodiest, most divisive events to take place in America's history, and most certainly ever on American soil. For four years our young country's sense of self and citizenry was shaken to the core as North and South battled each other. B is for Battle Cry brings to life historic battles (Antietam and Gettysburg), renowned leaders (Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee), inventions (ironclad ship and Gatling gun), and inspiring events and documents (the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation). From the first shot fired at Fort Sumter to Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House, B is for Battle Cry brings this nation-defining time period to vivid life.Patricia Bauer believes that stories bring history alive. She uses poetry, music, picture books, costumes, and literature to engage her middle school students in the study of American history. B is for Battle Cry is Pat's first children's book. She lives in Minneapolis with her artist husband, David Geister. David Geister's deep appreciation for the drama of American history and the desire to tell those stories is what inspires his artwork. He is a popular visitor at schools with his costumed portrayals of historic characters. He lives in Minneapolis with his author wife, Patricia Bauer. This is David's fifth book with Sleeping Bear.

Excellent for homeschooling multiple ages, the short poem on each page can be ready through together (ages 6+), and then older children can read the details on each page themselves. A quick and simple overview of the Civil War.
I was hoping so much that my grandchildren (ages 7&5) would enjoy this, and the DO! What I really like about the book is that the middle of the page has great pictures, and then a short description of the picture, which is nice for the younger children. Then on the sides of the page there is a more in depth description of the page, which appeals more to the older children. Really well done!
I really enjoy the side bar reading, and I like that this book will have value for my children when they get older and wish to know more about the Confederacy, Abraham Lincoln, etc. Great illustrations and short poetic paragraphs make it great for their current toddler-ish ages.
Just the right book for my grandsons, from age 8 to 13.
A friend told me about this book. Her son was used as a model of one of the soldiers. Every page is beautifully illustrated. I'm very happy to add this to my book collection!
This is just what I was looking for to give my 8 year old nephew who is very interested in this period of "soldiers." Nicely balanced between North and South. Great pictures, simple descriptions and explanations for a child of that age, with more in-depth treaty for when he is older.
Perfect alphabet book for students who are interested in the war between the states.
Book was in great condition.
