Booklist (November 15, 2014 (Vol. 111, No. 6))
The What Would You Do? series gives readers an opportunity to learn about some notable events in American history and then figure out what actions they might have taken had they been around. Every few pages, readers are asked to assume a persona (“What would you do if you were a tea-loving colonist?”) and then make a choice (force yourself to drink herbal tea or pay the tax?). In the hands of veteran series specialist Landau, the questions really force readers to think. In Discovering a New World, readers are put in Christopher Columbus’ shoes after the Pinta breaks down. Would you leave the boat in the Canary Islands, visit nearby islands and search for a replacement, or wait until a new rudder can be built? What actually occurred in each case is contained in the narrative on the following page. The clean, open design with room for a good-size typeface and plentiful historical pictures invites readers in, and the boxed questions will provide teachers the opportunity to start conversations. Lots of pluses here.
