Horn Book Review

The popular dolls' fictional stories introduce each time period, but these large-size books are in fact lavishly illustrated accounts of life in the past. Most of the history is told through captioned photos of historical objects (toys, tools, clothing) and illustrations, though the lines between fact and the fictional characters are sometimes confusingly blurred. The topics will be of particular interest to the series' fans, but all ages will enjoy browsing. From HORN BOOK Spring 2000, (c) Copyright 2010.
