Review

This book chronicles Aaron Burr and Alexander’s similarities in their early lives and their conflicts in their later lives focusing specifically on their duel. It presents an accurate view of history, but the author does not give many reasons that the two men disliked each other, merely citing political differences and supposed slanders. It is an interesting topic for a children’s book, but history is important to learn from; in this case, a parent or teacher can use this book to teach children to be kind and think through their decisions because emotions alone can lead to bad decisions. The pictures were well done and fit well with the story. Recommended. Christiana Manthei, Centennial Library Intern
