School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-7-Through arts-and-crafts projects, children are encouraged to learn about the United States. They are taken back in history to experience how the early settlers provided shelter and creature comforts, procured their food and clothing, and began some traditions that continue today. Divided geographically, the chapters have catchy titles such as "Lizards and Skulls: The American Southwest." Areas included are Colonial America, North Country pioneer life, the Pacific Rim, etc. Each section includes projects, fun facts, games, and other activities. Plenty of suggestions for theme parties are included as are recipes for traditional foods, such as apple pie, sourdough pancakes, and root beer. All activities are coded by degrees of difficulty and length of time needed to complete them. While the intended audience for the book is children, teachers will find many worthwhile activities to enrich social studies units.-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
