America’s Tea Parties: Not One But Four

America Tea Parties

Until I read the book America’s Tea Parties:  Not One But Four by Marissa Moss, I only knew about the Boston Tea Party.  With the information given in this book one is better able to understand why the Boston Tea Party happened; and the concerted effort by colonists in all colonies to oppose taxation without representation.  While Boston was a hotbed of patriotism, other cities disposed of tea in one way or another during this time of history.  It’s extremely readable and includes newspaper articles, artwork and political cartoons from the time.  It’s a great book to use with elementary, middle and even high school students.

For the past year, I’ve read marvelous non-fiction books about history in the picture book format.  I’ll start sharing more of them.
