five smooth stones, a GREAT book  Nov 15, 2007
Five Smooth Stones was a great book. I really liked how they wrote it like a diary. I liked the part of the book when Hope's brother Ethan made a small wooden box to put her quill pen in so the cat wouldn't get it. I also liked it when Hope wanted to make her little sister middle name be strawberry. I really didn't like it when Hope's friend Polly spelled a word wrong and her teacher made her sit in the corner on a stool and wear a dunce hat. So all in all I rate this book 5 stars. You should read it !!!!!!!!

Do judge this book by it's cover  Oct 22, 2002
Five Smooth Stones is about a regular girl in the Revolutionary War period.Hope has her father is at war, her brother is away and her mother is expecting a baby. This novel revolves around the lifestyle and history of the late 1700's and gives you a great lesson about that time period and has you conncet with a girl in that world. Although this book is only 93 pages not counting photos and drawings and has a little bit large typing the book give you a lot of feelings to take in and the use of the words, shall, ye, and thou are many.I reccomend this book to girls or boys with an avid interest in history within a diary formed book.
Interesting but lacking.  Aug 10, 2002
"Five Smooth Stones: Hope's Revolutionary War Diary" is a decent book for younger readers learning about the lifestyle led by colonists during The Revolutionary War. For historical points, this book is lacking, until the Historical Note at the end of the story. Read "The Winter of Red Snow: The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1777," also by Gregory, with or instead of this book, to get a bigger and better picture of The Revolutionary War. A good book for younger readers interested in history, but might be boring for older more knowledgeable history buffs. I "kind of" recommend.
A great historical novel  May 3, 2002
