2003 Award
Bull Run
( by Paul Fleishman, HarperCollins $4.95 Score: ) Gives young readers the voices of 12 different people who are on the way and eventually involved in the Battle at Bull Run. Although this is set in the Civil War, I think it is an amazing book that opens kids minds to the bigger idea that each of the people involved comes to this single moment in history with very different perspectives. There' s a run-away boy who is too young to fight but becomes a bugle boy; a slave women who is forced to work for the Confederate side but is rooting for the Union; there are the voices of those who were let behind and those who must face the horror of the battlefield and beyond-a powerful book for 9 & up.
