School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-In five chapters, the colonies of New Hampshire and Delaware are described from the very beginnings to life after independence. In between, the political happenings and everyday life are covered and the major personalities are examined. Written in a clear, concise conversational tone, these overviews present information effectively. Through primary-source quotations, readers are introduced to the people and events of the times. New Hampshire gives a better sense of what day-to-day life was like, but Delaware does an adequate job. A better series for that kind of information is "The Thirteen Colonies" (Children's). However, this series brings a more literary approach to the research. The language is tighter, more succinct, and on a higher reading level. Black-and-white photos and reproductions add interest. Solid additions on subjects that are always researched in schools, made even more valuable because of the primary-source material.-Kay Bowes, Concord Pike Library, Wilmington, DE (c) Copyright 2010.
