The World of Hamilton

By Edie Kitzman (age 7)

I have a CD in the car called “Hamilton”. Hamilton was a founding father. The CD has different songs about his life, and that’s how I know about him. The story of Hamilton makes me feel happy at the part where him and his friends get along. And it makes me feel sad when he got shot by an enemy. What also makes me feel sad about him is his son got shot, too, in the same place as Hamilton.

A kid's chapter book about Hamilton.

If Hamilton could be a hero, then we all could be heroes, too.

If Hamilton could be a hero, then we all could be heroes, too.

I wrote a book about Hamilton, and there are about seventeen chapters. I wrote it because Hamilton is real, and there are not enough books about him (that I know), and I feel like Hamilton should be honored, because of how he made things happen and why he made things happen. Also, in my life I feel that Hamilton was something more than just a founding father. And I think Hamilton would be great in our world today (if he was alive).

Listening to the music makes me want to see the play, which is exciting to me. Because I love Hamilton.  If Hamilton could be a hero, then we could be heroes, too.
