School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-In each of these well-organized titles, two-page sections discuss a range of topics. Blacksmith covers the items around the home and farm made at a smithy, and the tools of the trade. Milliner discusses the shop, its stock, and Colonial fashion while Woodworker details the many different types of tradespersons this field covers, e.g., woodsmen, cabinetmakers, coopers, wainwrights, shipwrights, and housewrights. With plentiful, clearly labeled illustrations, these titles will appeal to young readers. Full-color photographs of contemporary reenactment scenes at Colonial Williamsburg, VA, and Old Salem, NC, provide realistic images of individuals at work. These accessible books will be valuable for curriculum units.-Deborah Rothaug, Pasadena Elementary School, Plainview, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
