    Gr. 3-6. From the writer and illustrator of Conestoga Wagons (2000), this large-format book presents a pivotal time in the Revolutionary War: the winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge. The stage is set with an introduction to George Washington and the war as well as a time line. In the two-page sections that follow, the text appears on the left, illustrated by facing full-page artwork. These solid oil paintings effectively portray the soldiers in action and in reflection. Many books have noted the hardships endured by the army at Valley Forge, but Ammon does a good job of giving readers the historical background and context as well as the sort of vivid, concrete details that make the facts memorable. He doesn't just list the sicknesses that plagued the army; he notes that with no showers and little soap, the soldiers groomed their hair by sprinkling it with flour, which attracted disease-carrying lice. Pair this with David Adler's book George Washington, reviewed above. ((Reviewed September 15, 2004)) Copyright 2004 Booklist Reviews.
