Library Media Connection Reviews 2010 March/April
Each volume in this series consists of chapters that highlight major developments in national and world politics, history, medicine, the arts, sports, lifestyles, etc. The final chapter, "Looking Ahead," sets the stage for the next volume. The mainly color photographs and illustrations drive the easy-to-read narrative. Events such as the 1899 U.S. war in the Philippines to prevent its independence and the U.S. as a participant in the Boxer Rebellion are discussed. A small map showing the location of the event would have been useful. The essentially simple sentence structure works well for older students needing hi-lo resources. Bibliography. Chronology. Glossary. Websites. Index. Recommended. Esther Sinofsky, Director, Instructional Media Services, Los Angeles (California) Unified School District ¬ 2010 Linworth Publishing, Inc.

School Library Journal Reviews 2010 April

Gr 4-8-Large, well-chosen black-and-white and color photos are the strongest elements of these books, which each offer approximately 20 chapters covering economics, politics, wars, science, and popular culture. The focus is on U.S. history, but world events that influenced America are also discussed. Captions provide specific information about the photos and supplement, rather than repeat, information in the narratives. Attractive and readable, this series will be popular with browsers and beginning researchers.
