Boy Pilot and Racer
HELLO this is Monkey Number One here to review some books. I have always really liked non-fiction books because I love history. My grandfather is a historian and so I think I am like him. Since we are homeschooling now I get a lot of time to read books about subjects I like. These books from the Young Patriots are some of my favorites to learn about what famous Americans were like when they were kids my age. Eddie Rickenbacker: Boy Pilot and Racer is AWESOME. I like the book because along with learning interesting facts comes a GREAT story too. Eddie reminds me of my grandfather from the stories he told me about when he was a little boy. He (and I) were all mischievous little monkeys. I also liked that he liked flying in World War 1 (i’m fascinated by World War 1 and 2).
Some of the facts i learned were...
- Eddie was born in Columbus Ohio on October 8 1890.
- There were 44 union states at the time.
- Benjamin Harrison was president.
I also learnt a lot more so if I were rating it 1-10 i would give it a 100000000 and for ages 8-12 and still i’m reading more and more of the series so I will tell you about it.
Hello this Monkey #1 again here to tell you that this book is AWESOME. It is the same style as the Eddie Rickenbacker book. I was disappointment though because the book only talks about his early childhood and I really wanted to hear more about him as an adult. But I guess that is the point of these books, they leave you wanting more. Still the book was great, I like how it teaches that it doesn't matter how old you are that everyone should be respected.
Some facts i learnt are...
- In the year 1765 the stamp act was in action
- Alex was born in 1755 on the island of Nevis
- Alex joined the America colonists army
and lots more so if i were rating this 1-10 it would be a 100000000000 and for ages 7-12
I'm still reading more of the series so i can tell you about it but for now buy the books they are great!
Have you read these book before?
