Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-2-Straightforward but lifeless presentations for beginning readers. These small-format overviews of different aspects of Colonial life present full-page, average-quality photographs opposite large-print, simple texts. One to three sentences offer a statement and/or explanation, such as "Some people were cobblers. Cobblers made shoes from leather." Finally, each book summarizes the preceding pages with a one-line statement opposite a photo collage of some of the previous pictures of modern-day enactment scenes. Each title concludes with a glossary listing no more than nine words, a guide to books and Web sites, and a short index. While children may learn some facts about the period, there are many better titles that will inspire and encourage reading.

The information available did not mention the low reading level. I bought them for a granddaughter who reads material on the level of "Harry Potter."

Perfect pictures. It's hard to understand how New York City could be so different, but this book is just right for elementary kids to understand.

This series of books is great for early readers. Each page is a full color photograph with a simple sentence describing the action on each page. Don't expect a lot of detailed information.

Format: Paperback
This book is geared to primary children, but might make a nice introduction for studying colonial America. The book shows games like rolling the hoop and nine pins.
