Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Biographies are one of the best ways for children to learn about the past. Seeing other eras through individual lives brings a depth of knowledge that learning facts can't approximate. In these days where seeking information is stressed, it is easy to lose meaning. Personalizing history through knowing its people is the best way to make history live. People from the past have much to teach our children about succeeding in the present. In this book that is part of the "Picture the American Past" series, Littlefield shows the confusion and helplessness of orphaned children sent west from 1854-1929. Each page is filled with monochromatic historical pictures and few words. Though simple in sentence structure, these books don't ignore harsh facts and they choose poignant quotes from children to illustrate situations. 2001, Carolrhoda, . Ages 8 to 10.
