    1. Well, I think it s completely unfair for me to compare this book to The Letter Home and Run Far, Run Fast, both of which I thought were brilliant, but it s impossible for me to refrain from doing so All three books are written and illustrated by the brilliant Timothy Decker I don t think I ve read anything about the Boston Massacre since I was in jr high or high school, so the story did refresh my memory But, it s the illustrations that shine here, and the story is very straightforward account T [...]

    2. In For Liberty Decker brings his wondrous eye to The Colonies in 1770 He s working in what feels like a larger format here, but on closer reflection is actually of a zoomed in scale His drawing is deceptively simple, and one can revisit his panels at length and be richly rewarded The story itself is a familiar one to most of us, but is told here succinctly and with an underlying passion The loving and lingering examination of the soldiers uniforms is delightful, and the sudden switch to an aeri [...]

    3. For those elementary and middle school kids who remember their picture book days as the last time they loved reading, here is a powerful take on a grimly fascinating event This is small history fifteen minutes that changed the world, and the drama is enhanced by stark, black and white illustrations that evoke both David MacAulay and the Manga form Perhaps its greatest gift is to individualize the players, making the tragedy all the human This is history that comes alive.

    4. Decker, T 2009 For liberty The story of the Boston Massacre Honesdale, Pa Calkins Creek.I selected For Liberty The Story of the Boston Massacre as the book that I didn t really care for because of the book s illustrations which were black and white graphic fiction style I think that black and white pictures may not capture and hold the students attention as well as colored pictures might, however, some students may appreciate that aspect This book describes the events of the Boston Massacre in a [...]

    5. I like this book because it is a good opportunity to incorporate reading with social studies Using this book, you can provide students with the opportunity to role play For role playing, they are ultimately putting themselves in the role of someone else or group of people, and then acting it out For reenactments, students are asked to focus on people in specific events in history or present times In other words, they are becoming that character in that period Also, this is a good way to get stud [...]

    6. Only the bellicose remained on the streets of Boston as the British soldiers tried to maintain order Great book with fabulous vocabulary and wonderful ink illustrations tells a famous historical event from an perspective we don t often have access to as Americans This book paired with the text book telling of the Boston Massacre lends itself to some amazing conversation around perspective The opportunity to have a discussion about whose story is being told and who is being represented could be e [...]

    7. This one kind of has me baffled It s the story of the Boston Massacre, told by Timothy Decker, a New Jersey resident The title page states that it is Addressed to the Inhabitants of America , which struck me as odd The brief retelling of the historical incident is told in a straight forward, documentary type fashion and has an abrupt ending Decker s illustrations, however, are striking and incredibly detailed black and white inks.

    8. This book does a good job of letting the reader know about what happened at the Boston Massacre and the trial that followed This book has great illustration but i started to get bored with the book when they got into the trial part.

    9. Great historical detail, excellent illustrations that match the text well but I cannot believe that, although he appeared in the illustrations, Crispus Attucks wasn t mentioned by name What was Decker thinking
