Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Three superficially attractive series entries. A Child's Day is about ``early settler children'' who belong to a fictional farm family, but there is no precise definition of the time or place. The book is illustrated with full-color photographs of the two featured children and sometimes poorly drawn imitations of 19th-century engravings. The captions are sometimes in the present and sometimes in the past tense. The story takes readers through a day of chores, fun and games, getting dressed, visiting peddlers, a fair, and going to school. Sidebars include recipes and a morality tale from a third-grade primer. Fort Life is completely factual, beginning with earliest American defenses. Aspects of the life of the soldiers are described and almost all of the illustrations are photographs taken at restored historical sites. However, the discussion is not strictly chronological and one must consult the photo credits to identify such places as Fort Laramie and Colonial Williamsburg. A One-Room School describes the physical plan, supplies, routines, and rules of schools from an unspecified historic period of rural American history. In the middle of the facts, a two-page story of ``John's'' trip to school and another about ``Amanda'' being locked in the building are included as if part of the same exposition. Kalman's ``Early Settler Life'' series Crabtree, and Kate Waters's Sarah Morton's Day 1991 and Samuel Eaton's Day 1993, both Scholastic are better treatments of historical American life.-Sylvia S. Marantz, formerly with Worthington Schools, Columbus, OH
