   It was great, I actually learned a ton as an adult
My 6 year old daughter visited the Alamo with her grandparents and came home asking ALOT of questions to which I did not have answers... so we snagged this book! There are risqué themes : many of Texas'founding fathers were alcoholics, slave owners, or had affairs on their wives. They did not harp on these subjects, but the book did not shy away from the truth about each person. I LOVED it! I think it is really great for my kiddo now to learn that no one is perfect, even if they are heroes. I bought another book in this series immediately ''. It has been rare that my girl has expressed interest in non-fictional reading and is pretty excited to pick up another.
   Great history books for Kids.
I bought this for my second grader number one to have material for her to read. Secondly, to try to promote an interest in history. In this series there are various books on several historical events and figures. This one deals not just the Battle of Alamo, but also the War for Mexico's Independence from Texas. It deals with a lot of the underlying conflict that led to the revolution and the people who shaped the whole Texas independence struggle. My daughter loved reading it and is looking forward to going with her through other books in this series.
   A great book for kids
I bought this book for my 11 year old son who will make a trip to Texas with his grandparents this summer and the Alamo will be one of the places they see. For my son, the Alamo, a piece of family history. My family are descendants of Davey Crockett and this book explained what happened in a much simpler way than I could. I highly recommend this book for children.
   Teacher's Favorite
As an ELA teacher, I am familiar with the series and I am a big fan. The books provide relevant information that is specific. The presentation is engaging and just the right amount of.
   My son loved it.
My son is mildly obsessed with Davy Crockett, so he was very eager to read this title. He loves these books, so I'm quick to order them when a title catches his attention. They are a very quick read, but have served him so well for the 2nd grade.
   sooooooooo good
I live in Texas, but i've been to Jolla California and I didn 't want to learn about Alamo, but this book makes me think I am plain stupid. I know why Houston is called Houston, and know why there is a college called Stephen F. Austin. I know so many things I wouldn't have known if I had not read this book. I loved it.
   Great for students of ALL ages
I use many books in this series for my adult readers - students... they cover topics of interest to their age groups, yet help younger students discover the past.
   My 10 year old son love the Who Was Series
My 10 year old son loves the Who Was series. Highly recommended, highly recommended.
   It was ok. A little slow
This was a little confusing and didn 't flow as well. Like some of the others, it certainly didn't hold my attention, as the story was slow and was not written to be very suspenseful.
