B Is for Battle Cry is a beautifully written and illustrated alphabetical introduction to the Civil War that incorporates a clever poetic element for each entry. Author Patricia Bauer created the 26 brief poems to fit as the verses of Stephen Foster's "Hard Times Come Again No More," adding a unique option for "reading" the book aloud.

B is for Battle Cry: A civil War Alphabet is all about the civil war. It goes through the alphabet, each letter is a topic that discusses about the civil war. This book can be used two different ways. One it can be used just like a regular book, or two it can be used as resource for a project on the civil war. This book has additional words on the side of the pages for those that want more information on the civil war. This would be used for the higher grades 4th to 5th grade.

This book features amazing illustrations alongside an alphabet themed interpretation of the Civil War. There are also more in depth explanations on the side of each page to further explain each topic.

This book has amazing illustrations. It also has great bold typed explanations of civil war terms for a read aloud but has smaller text for closer reading. I think students would enjoy creating their own Civil War alphabet books.

awesome pictures; can be a great lead into civil war unit.

Teaches the reader a lot of great Civil War vocabulary long with fabulous illustrations. This book is a must to have around the classroom during the Civil War unit.

Great book!
