Many Ways to be a Soldier by Wendy Pfeffer

Pfeffer, Wendy Many Ways to be a Soldier, illustrations by Elaine Verstraete, 47 p. Millbrook (Lerner), 2008. Rem is too young to join his soldier father during the American Revolution. Instead he must stay at home. When he runs to check the town cannon one day, he spots boatloads of British soldiers. With the help of some of the town women, they light the cannon, but Rem must come up with a special trick in order to save the town. Rem's story is a good early reader in history. EL - ADVISABLE
