In this ongoing series, which began in 2006 with lean, information-dense volumes on Presidential Families, Cats, Birds, and The American Revolution, the Smithsonian offers further educational outreach, expanding on research conducted within Institution collections. Each book is broken down by subject-theme; the field-specialist authors communicate information via highly accessible question-and-answer formats. Educational and entertaining, the books are filled with sumptuous full-color photography, period illustrations, significant pull-quotes, and essential sidebar trivia that keep the eye and mind engaged. Perfect for both the developing young mind and the interested layperson, they are highly recommended for school libraries and general collections.
