Bearhug and Cuddlebug's class made ABC books about the Revolutionary War. For each letter of the alphabet, they chose one item from their study of the American Revolution and wrote their description of it, along with an illustration. In some cases, they each chose the same item for a particular letter, but not always (and even when they chose the same item, they each had their own take on it).
I love their perspectives on history and the drawings are really cute and funny. :) Each of them included an "about the author" page also. In the interest of space, I pulled out just 10 pages from each of their books to share below (click to enlarge any of the pages):
These were at the end of the books, but I'll start with the "about the author" pages :)
I asked Cuddlebug about the "he loves war" part and he said he meant he loves learning about war (ie. wars in history).
"Wacko & Weirdo" is a comic series that Bearhug has been writing. I need to post some here, they're really cute and funny :).
I love how they both listed their age as "9 3/4 years." :)
And here are some of the book pages:
"Whatta fail" LOL.
hee hee, "King George eventually went ballistic, so he taxed more!"
a little embellishment there with "he also maybe then ripped it in half," that drawing made me laugh :). I assured the boys that the Declaration of Independence is actually still in one piece.
Wow that is a lot of British soldiers with some serious firepower coming after Patrick Henry, brave guy!
I love the time sequence showing the guy getting ready in a minute :)
It's a little small there, but the picture shows the prices going up (was $0.20, now $2.00) as a result of more taxes from King George.
We've been reading scriptures as a family, and we started with the story of Nephi and his family in the Book of Mormon.
LOL, this cracks me up. Bearhug had the same thing for X. X is nothing. :)
LOL, "King George III had a lot of zeal to tax the colonists."
I love his interpretation of "zeal." :)
