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.

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 whole series is horrible. I know it was made for younger people but there should have been more information. Anyone could have made this book using microsoft word and photos off the internet in about 10-15 minutes.

This is an informative, easy to read book ideal for young readers. I used this book, along with several other books for the "Colonial America series" with my first grade class. The students enjoyed the book.

Seller shipped immediately. Book was misleading. Needed more detail for 7th graders. Very babyish.
