School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-The material in these books is well organized and presented in short, manageable double-page chapters. Among the dozen or so basic topics are "Getting Food," "Clothes," and "Children." The writing is perfect for inexperienced researchers who can sometimes get overwhelmed and discouraged by too much information. The books are illustrated with an outstanding collection of historical and modern photographs and paintings, reproduced in color and in black and white. These three titles would be valuable additions to any primary-grade nonfiction section. One small complaint: The author uses the catch-all term "Native Americans" in Pioneer Homestead and Oregon Trail instead of the appropriate tribal or clan names.-Steve Clancy, Colonial Village Elementary School, Niagara Falls, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
