Book of the Week: Imogene’s Last Stand

Book of the Week, Children's

Imogene’s Last Stand by Candace Fleming ¬†

Published: Schwartz & Wade 2009

The reasons why I liked this book, and chose it as Book of the Week:

It’s smart.

Imogene is smart, strong, and courageous.

It shows children to stand up for what you believe it.

It’s historical fiction.

It teaches children about important moments in American History.

Shows children that they are valuable parts of our community.

It’s fun.

The artwork is simple yet imaginative and well done.

Even though it’s full of historical facts and figures, it’s well written and understandable.¬† It’s not weighed down by those facts and figures.

 Imogene is always spouting off quotes originally spouted off by famous people in our history.

It shows that if we work together we can work toward a greater good.
