Reviews

School Library JournalThese attractive volumes provide solid information. . . . Strengths consistent throughout the four books include engaging text, well-selected illustrations, a one-paragraph introduction on the contents page that summarizes the scope of the book, and translation of period costs to current dollar values. These texts cover a wide span of time and history; this scope, along with some of the surprising information in the many pull-out boxes, leaves readers wanting more. That is not necessarily a bad thing, as students can follow up with further research on the topics of interest.

Each spread is busy with illustrations, engravings, and photos, all with captions so it takes a little work to get a linear historical recounting. Overall, these titles are worthwhile additions.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, AL (c) Copyright 2012.
