Editorial Review

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Cover: Historic Williamsburg: A Revolutionary City

“This series chronicles the development of well-known U.S. landmarks. Kids learn that the Gateway Arch is symbolic of St. Louis being a gateway to the west and that an artist named Lei Yixin was the sculptor of the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial. Handsome photographs are plentiful in all of the books, adding to their appeal. However, there are a few questionable moments. Mentions of American Indians in Yellowstone are spare, and the term enemy alien appears in the text and is listed in the glossary in Ellis Island. An appealing design will make these popular introductions among those curious about U.S. history and geography.”—School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
