From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6–These titles have attractive, colorful pages with plentiful photos and reproductions and a running time line across the bottom of most spreads. Dates chronicle important happenings and place the subjects in the context of history and world events. Both authors include early childhood and family background and present a glimpse of everyday life during the period. Accomplishments and hardships are clearly explained with supporting quotes and facts. Maps, text boxes, a glossary, and several Web sources aid report writers. Beautifully illustrated and visually appealing additions.–Kathleen A. Nester, Downingtown High Ninth Grade Center, PA
