Part of the Sonlight Curriculum, like all the books they recommend a very good book.
For someone researching Thomas Jefferson they should know that this is based on historical fact, but fictionalized and only talks about the childhood of the former president.
My family and I sat down to read one chapter as a homeschool project for History and ended up reading the whole book. Very good book. Teachers should teach on the heritage of America more often. Great man and great story.
