Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Both books use controlled vocabulary and simple sentences to encourage successful experiences for newly independent readers. The first title tells of Revere's involvement with the Sons of Liberty, the events leading up to his famous ride, and the ride itself, along with two legends about this celebrated event. Accurate facts and charming illustrations, reminiscent of Thomas Hart Benton's energetic mural style, add authenticity and character. On the last page, the famous John Singleton Copley portrait of Revere is reproduced in black and white, but, unfortunately, the artist is not identified. This book is satisfying fare for independent readers not quite ready for chapter books. Choppers!, designed for children ready to read paragraphs, discusses helicopters, their history, and their many uses. The fabulous photographs, most of them in color, show the aircraft flying over volcanoes, rescuing people and animals, building bridges, and capturing crooks. The first chapter ends with a spread that identifies the parts of a helicopter, and chapter two explains how it flies. New readers, especially boys, will argue over who gets this book next.-Pamela K.
