Summary: This book tells about how Switzerland became to be through revolution."He knew what wise men have always known, that man lives by faith, and that faith can be stronger than fear..." This quote shows how difficult times would be for this boy, but he never let his faith waiver.

Personal Reaction.
I liked the book but it was hard to me to become interested in because I like to learn about current events and not history. Although I know as a teacher I will have to conquer this and learn how to make my students enthusiastic about history.

Classroom Extensions:
I would have my student put them selves in the shoes of the young boy and write me a story about what they would have done the same and what they might have done different.
I would try to reenact some of the story from this book and bring some lively hood to my classroom while learning all at the same time.

"He knew what wise men have always known, that man lives by faith, and that faith can be stronger than fear..." This was so much more than a story about William Tell. In five short chapters we learned and lived the history of the founding of Switzerland. A wonderful and touching book. ( )

Review: This book is told in 1291 the legend of William Tell. Both the father and son live happily near their home until towards the end of the year they enter into a revolution started by albrecht. William then begins to bring honor to his name even hundreds of years later.

Personal Reaction: I enjoyed the book a lot. Its definitely a book that I would have been interested in when i was younger and even now it interests me. I like books that seem historic and have action.

Extension: This book is for young students who enjoy history. Also, can be used when talking about Newbery books and why the students thinks the book got the award.

Summary: A terrific story of a small boys hope in his father, his father's precision with a bow and arrow, and his own faith. Eventually, the young man must take an oath to protect his family, freinds, and countrymen. Ultimately, by his father's subconciously, conscientousness muttering under his breath, in blatant reservations to kneeling before any God, except the "Lord God", that examines one's ability to test our sincerity. As a result of this action and the developing events, William Tell, his father, Walter Tell, the mother of his children when he grows up, experiences the birth of a new Nation, the Swiss Republic.

Review: I thought this was a good book. The story described the 13th century and elelments of that time with great accuracy. Words like "shivering as with ague", "bring game home for the larder", "crush a skull like a filbart", or to "waylay" someone, also take the reader back to that century, helping the reader visualize or infer what the author is conveying. HIstorically, WIlliam Tell became known for his bow and arrow accuracy, I believe he should be known, as well for his integrity, determination, and wisdom. A good chapter book for those with few interests, and the hard to reach reader.

Extension Idea:Being a Newberry Literary Award winning book it isn't hard to find good teaching topics to elaborate on. As the book has historical lessons to examine, geograpy, different government policies, trust, honor, and skills not so common today. ( )
