School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-8-These titles open with a descriptive foreword that highlights the differences between the northern and southern colonies, their particular economic and political issues, and how they were ultimately able to come together to pursue a common goal at the Constitutional Convention. The introductions include an illustrated map of the 13 colonies and mention of the diverse immigrant population, the mix of religious beliefs, and the rise of democracy. Black-and-white drawings and reproductions are scattered throughout the texts. Boxed sidebars bring the important figures and topics of the time to readers' attention. Both books cover Native American tribes and early exploration by Europeans, settlement, important towns, education, farm and city life during and after the Revolution, governmental changes, and more. These titles will be useful for reports.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
