Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-Although these books provide some useful information on the clothing of their target eras, both are oversimplified. Each one begins with a hodgepodge of historical facts followed by double-page chapters. Only a limited variety of each type of clothing is discussed; for example in American Revolution, the only women's footwear noted is a high heel worn by "wealthy, but conservative ladies." The same is true of men's head wear. In some cases (in particular, the use of powder on wigs in this title), the books raise more questions than they answer. There are no pictures of some of the important clothing mentioned such as corsets, men's shoes, and the Promenade dress typical of Southern plantation life. In both books, most of the illustrations are contemporary photos. Bobbie Kalman and Antoinette DeBiasi's 18th Century Clothing and 19th Century Clothing (both Crabtree, 1993) are better choices on the subject.

Format: Library Binding
The story of American clothing from colony to country is nicely illustrated with drawings and photographs of costumed historical interpreters. Articles of clothing are described with detail about color, design and construction, and there is some pretty amusing (and accurate) information about wigs and cosmetics.

What People Wore During the American Revolution is an excellent addition to a young student's exploration of 18th century history. A glossary and reference to two websites are included.
