Booklist Review

The Timeline Trackers: America's Beginnings series uses time lines running along the bottom of each two-page spread to provide visual information in tandem with the text. This works quite well, but actually it's the text itself that's a standout. Clearly written and putting events into context admirably, this title traces the history of the U.S. government from the Articles of Confederation to the passage of the Bill of Rights. The book discusses the reasons why a weak central government hampered the fledgling country's growth while also explaining the doubts many states had about shifting power. Information about how the Federalist Papers changed minds about a stronger central government, introductions to some of the delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention (and their vigorous debates), and coverage of weighty issues such as slavery are also included. A crisp format invites students in.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2015 Booklist
