    1. Voices of the Alamo is a picture book for readers that are in 3rd to 6th grade. Each page features a character from an influential time of the history of the Alamo. It begins with a Payaya maiden in 1500 and ends with a young boy seeing the Alamo today. The book focuses on 16 different characters including David Crockett, William Baret Travis, and Santa Ana. The Alamo has a lot of history that many students do not realize, and this book gives faces to its evolution. This book would be a nice int [...]


    2. This book tells the history of the Alamo: not just the battle of the Alamo, but the entirety of its history. We see the native Indians of what is now Texas, the Spanish Conquistadors, the establishment of the mission, the battle of the Alamo, and the Texan independence won at San Jacinto. This book teaches Mexican, Texan, and American history through the stories of lives affected by the Alamo. I really liked this book, and I connected to it personally because I am from Texas. It remembers the li [...]


    3. Told in a journal or diary format, Voices of the Alamo does not just inform about the famous Battle of the Alamo. Instead, it begins in 1500 with the Payaya Indians who were one of the tribes who inhabited what is now known as Texas, shows conquistadors, the Catholic missionaries who were there to convert the native Indians to Catholicism, all the way to modern times. I like how the book is told in the voice of the person who wrote it and gives readers a very long history of the area that the Al [...]


    4. This was about different views of the Alamo from the people. It went form 1500-2015 and how the peoples views of it changed overtime. It was interesting to see the different views from the beginning of the story to the end. In the beginning it was about how the indians lived together with nature and with the Alamo. Towards the end it expressed how we have to be the ones to remember what happened. This book was okay. I didn't really like how it was written. However, I thought the illustrations we [...]


    5. Voices of the Alamo is a year by year account of the Alamo. It gives detailed descriptions of what happens to the people and events through out history. This book is good if you are trying to explain to the class a play by play of the Alamo. I would suggest this book to a 6th grade history class.


    6. This is a picture book that represents history well to young readers. ItCan help explain a timeline to students and also the many events that took place at the Alamo.


    7. This book tells the story of the events leading up to the Alamo from the points of different people involved in the history of Texas and the Alamo. The story begins in with the Payaya Indians whose home was in present day Texas. In the 1500's the Spanish conquistadors came in search of gold while the Catholic padres came to help convert the Native Americans. American settlers arrive and come to start their homes in Texas. Beginning in 1836, the months leading up to the Alamo are described throug [...]
