Summary, etc.: "Alexander Hamilton was one of America's founders. He was the first secretary of the treasury and George Washington's right-hand man. But he also made some dangerous enemies during his short yet dramatic life "--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 May #2
    Excitement about the musical Hamilton may or may not have filtered down to the easy-reader set, but this entry in the I Can Read! series makes for a solid introduction to a founding father. Using short sentences and simple concepts, the book begins by telling readers Alexander Hamilton "was a soldier, a lawyer, and a financial wizard." It goes on to preview him as "stubborn and proud"—as well as a man who didn't get along with Aaron Burr. The focus then returns to his boyhood in the Caribbean, where Hamilton, orphaned at an early age, was able to parlay his skills into running a business and finding patrons who sent him to college in America. The bulk of the book traces his rise under George Washington and concisely explains his differences with Thomas Jefferson and Burr. His antagonism toward the latter, of course, led to Hamilton's death. Fine painting-like illustrations entice readers and extend the text. Excellent back matter features a time line and extra information, including Hamilton's views on slavery. Grades K-2. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
