School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Supplemental resources for students who are studying these topics. Industrial Revolution outlines the key people of this time period and their contributions. Francis Scott Key will serve as a resource to units on patriotism or for those studying the American flag or national anthem. Nat Turner provides an example of a slave's life and will enhance a unit on slavery. Each well-organized book has interesting color and black-and-white illustrations, reproductions, and photographs.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego (c) Copyright 2010.

Horn Book Review

Each of these biographies traces the major events and accomplishments in the life of its subject. The books are highly decorated, but the texts are dry and uninspired; broad generalizations and flat storytelling sanitize history. Direct quotations lack source notes. The books are illustrated with photos and historical images, some of which are colorized. Map, reading list, timeline. Glos., ind.
