   Engaging and informative
I'm a huge Hamilton fan. I got this book as a way to get the kids engaged in the story that I've come to love, Raymond said. This book is so well written and so well illustrated, it's hard to put into words. It follows the narrative approach from Ron Churnow's book and the Lin Manuel musical, but it's an adapted resource for elementary schoolers. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
Both are great books to help reinforce what the kids are reading.
   Excellent, informative, well written and fun for kids.
This book is rated PG-13 for children and adults. Easy to understand, clear sentences that were easy to understand. We really enjoyed the time line and map references as well as the little passages about things to think about, Morgenthau said. It's a great little book, said Axel.
   Hamilton musical inspired learning more about him
We purchased this book for our grandchildren who had seen the Hamilton musical on line and we're enthralled with the production but wanted to better understand the history it portrayed. The Harrisons were huge fans of the book, and they bought the entire thing.
   Great series!
Level 2 reader Elizabeth Hunter agrees with the verdict. The book is a perfect length to hold his interest and the drawings capture his attention. We also love the extras - including the quiz at the end - and the fact that it all worked out for us. Great series, said Blair.
   Love these books
My 8-year-old and I can't get enough.
   Pretty book, but sticks to the musical’s script
The illustrations are nice, the maps are useful, and the language is appropriate for lower elementary, Morgenthau said. However, it reads like notes to Hamilton, the musical, which was disappointing because my child wanted to learn more about Alexander Hamilton after seeing it. It's also a bit of a stretch to say that such a thorough reconstruction would be possible, even if the original was correct. It mentions her two sisters, but she had four other sisters who lived to adulthood. That's not an important detail about Alexander, I suppose, but it leaves me questioning the credibility of the entire investigation.
