Praise For Alexander Hamilton: The Making of America

"The strength of the book is the generous use of Hamilton's own words...A solid introduction to a charismatic founding father."


"A great addition to upper elementary and middle school libraries...students will crave this title."


"Thoroughly researched and cited, this book is accessibly written and full of valuable information...Hamilton’s intelligence, ceaseless drive, and penchant for speaking his mind come across, giving readers a clear view of Hamilton’s character and his role in creating America."


"Kanefield is a capable nonfiction writer, organizing an eloquent review of Hamilton’s life while balancing the perspectives of his adversaries and skeptics... the story is told easily, making a founding father accessible to young readers the way Lin-Manuel Miranda has done on Broadway."
