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."

— Kirkus

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

— School Library Journal

"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."

— Booklist

"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."

— VOYA
