Review: 

In lively prose, this book recounts the events leading up to the Battle of Bunker Hill. What makes this book exceptional is its layout. The easy-to-read text is outlined in a border, creating a frame effect. Every two page spread includes colorful pictures or maps. The text is easy-to-read and well-written. The storytelling format holds the reader’s attention to the end.

The book also includes a glossary, interesting facts, important dates, important people, resources for further study, including web cites, library books, and places to visit. There is also a helpful table of contents and index.

This book is part of a series entitled "We the People", covering key events in U.S. history.
