Title: Alexander Hamilton Revolutionary by Martha Brockenbrough
Even if you've had the good luck to hold a crisp $10 bill, you've probably never studied the portrait on it or thought much about the man it depicts. HAMILTON, the bill says.Friday 56:
His courage and drive made him a standout soldier, noticed by many.Comment: I have been accepted as a judge for The Cybils, evaluating MS/HS Nonfiction titles. (The Cybils are book awards given out yearly by book bloggers.) This book about Alexander Hamilton is one of many nonfiction books I hope to read between now and the end of December in a quest to find the best nonfiction for teens published in 2017. This book, written by Martha Brockenbrough, promises to be a good one, though I am guessing that teens will deem it a bit long at 372 pages. One thing I have noticed, which I think is odd, the print is brown (not the customary black) I suppose that was a publishing decision designed to make it seem old. I'm learning a lot about the early days of our republic and about a man who played an important tole in getting things rolling, Alexander Hamilton. I don't know if the book is a winner, but it is certainly well-written.
