Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (April 1, 2015)
Gr 3-6-This series humanizes seminal events and movements in U.S. history through the exploration of the lives of men, women, and children. The authors do a terrific job of including a variety of viewpoints, such as those of slaves and child laborers. Sidebars highlight key ideas, including the Homestead Act and the mystery at Roanoke. Passages from primary source documents are included as well. A "Stop and Think" section concludes each title with provocative discussion questions that encourage readers to put themselves in the shoes of people from the featured era. The illustrations are made up of photos, maps, drawings, and charts. The most effecting images are those depicting children-the photo of the little boy selling metal for a World War II scrap drive is a particularly memorable addition. VERDICT Concise and well organized, with a broad perspective, this series is first-rate. © Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
