Frances Kelley's goal is to bring history alive for children by dramatizing pivotal scenes from American history. Here listeners will witness Paul Revere's midnight ride, Molly Pitcher's work at the Battle of Monmouth, George Washington's brave leadership in the American Revolution, and Betsy Ross's part in creating the American flag, just to name a few vignettes. Using imagined dialogue, Kelley enthusiastically throws herself into a variety of roles and accompanying voices, doing her best to differentiate male from female and old patriots from younger ones. Parents will appreciate Kelley's inclusion of female patriots along with their better-known male counterparts. Children will enjoy her lively way of presenting memorable scenes from America's past.
