    Author Stephanie Bearce is a former teacher—and it shows—in her creative nonfiction series: Top Secret Files, The Civil War. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Spies, Secret Missions, and Hidden Facts from the Civil War. The book delivers little known facts that are extremely interesting and well researched. (My two favorite sections: Spy, Soldier, Nurse-the story of Sarah Emma Edmonds-who disguised herself as a man in order to serve her country and Widow Greenhow-a spy who meets an unt [...]

    The Top Secret Files Series is a dream come true for young readers who love history and a surprise and delight for those who really really don't. Here is a treasure trove jam-packed with details not widely known about the Civil War, details that will spark interest in the most disinclined young reader and bring that era to life. Nine to twelve years old are sure to enjoy these books, but adults may find they're unable to stop turning the pages. For me it was like eating peanuts in that it was ha [...]

    The book was good if you want to learn random facts about the sivle war.


  • Carissa Burks

    This book is truly well put together. The author balances everything out and makes sure not to pay more attention or credit to one side or the other. She acknowledges the triumphs and tragedies of both sides in the war. She also celebrates women, children, and blacks that helped out whatever side they believed in.The chapters are short and very approachable. They're interesting and give enough facts without it being overbearing. It's a great supplement, especially when textbooks and history clas [...]

    The stories in this book cover some fascinating people and unknown or little-known elements of the American Civil War. It's not very well-written (or perhaps it was poorly edited), but will be easy for a young middle grade audience to understand. The stories seem to be truncated oddly and sometimes details don't fully connect, which is what leads me to believe that this was an issue of editing to fit a predetermined layout at the expense of better storytelling. I really loved the stories that we [...]

    If your kid (about 7-10 years old) is interested in spies and/or history, it's alright. The writing could be better, but gives you snippets that may lead to further discussion and interest in the topic at hand.


  • Megan

    A mix of lesser-known Civil War stories and activities to recreate codes used in the war. Recommended for upper elementary and middle school students who need some enrichment or want to go deeper than the textbook.


  • Chris

    Nice little book aimed at late grade school and middle school kids. Lots of cool facts in short chapters. I also liked the experiments for the kids to do at home: make a mini hot air balloon! A cypher wheel! A secret message egg! Fun!Free giveaway.
