Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"Air Force One" is the name of any aircraft that has the president as a passenger, Britton explains in this book, part of the "Symbols, Landmarks, and Monuments" series. The text also describes the different kind of airplanes that have become a major form of transportation for the presidents—from the types of planes to the technology that has made them a major form or transportation. There are also quite a few photographs of many of the airborne presidents and their airplanes, both inside and out. The book also includes a glossary, an index, a timeline, a list of fast facts, and the publisher's website address—which has an updated list of book links. There are many good book links for this series; however, as of yet there are not any links for this particular book. This is a good choice for those interested in the president's airplanes. 2004, ABDO Publishing Company, Ages 8 to 12.
—Joella Peterson
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-These books contain highly readable texts and historical and contemporary photographs, along with a "Fast Facts" page and a time line. Britton presents a vivid picture of Air Force One and of the Alamo. She shares insight into the founding of the Smithsonian and its dual mission of increasing knowledge through research and diffusing knowledge by collecting material and mounting exhibits. In Memorial, she offers a balanced discourse on the controversies surrounding the Vietnam War and the design competition for the memorial. The glossaries and indexes in these books will aid students involved in research, but some may find each title simply an enjoyable read.-Pamela K.
