The Boy in the Alamo by Margaret Cousins

The Boy in the Alamo

By Margaret Cousins
Level 5

It is always wonderful to find a book that is educational and entertaining. Originally published in 1958, The Boy in the Alamo tells the story of the siege of the Alamo through the point of view of 12-year-old Billy Campbell. This would make a great read-aloud for the whole family.
