Thank you for the Little Patriots series! I thought you would like to hear this 😊. I discovered your books about a year ago, and at the time my son (just turned 9 at the time) had been studying the Revolutionary War and loving it! So, I got him the Little Hornet book to see if he would enjoy it. Now, he is a good reader, but I haven’t been very successful in getting him to read for pleasure. He read a few chapters and then I think he forgot about it. Well now, almost a year later, he was looking for something else in his bookshelf. He comes downstairs … “Mom look what I found! Remember this book?!” So, he sits down and starts reading back at the beginning. He doesn’t get very far into it and says something like, “I feel like I’m there as part of the story! I don’t want to stop reading!” He read a couple more chapters, but it was late. He said, “I want to keep reading but my eyes are so tired!” Music to my ears! So I got the rest of the series on our kindle app, and I hope he continues to want to read them for his own pleasure!
My three-year old grandson, Jackson, adores the new Silas Moore book! Every day, he wants to read the story about the “rat catcher!” He can already finish the words on most of the pages. And he is absolutely fascinated by the rats, with their “long tails,” in Silas’ cage.
Last week, my husband complained about a rat that has taken up residence in our chicken enclosure. He commented that he was going to have to find a way to catch it … to which Jackson declared, “You need to build a good cage first, just like Silas Moore did!”
It’s amazing the lessons that children are able to absorb from a simple story. I hope that there will be more books about Silas Moore!
My son, Levi (age 11), met you last weekend at the event at Logan’s Fort in Stanford which he attended with his grandparents. We are homeschoolers, and Levi has a love for both history and reading; so my parents bought him all of the children’s novels you currently have available along with My Colonial Journal for Boys.
I just wanted to let you know that since the event last Saturday, Levi has completely read all four of the books in your Patriot Kids of the American Revolution Series. He has also completely read through My Colonial Journal (I was going to wait until next school year to have him work through the journal, but he’s begging to start now…so I guess this will be a summer project!). And he has started reading A Bucket Full of Courage. I expect him to finish it by the weekend.
Thank you SO much for these books! You have awakened fresh excitement and curiosity in my son along with a new interest in writing historical stories of his own.
Stephen was excited to meet Geoff Baggett this weekend at Fort Frederick. Mom gave him money to get the next book too! Not to mention Geoff even signed all of them for him! Thanks Geoff!
