Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of ten books in the "You Choose" series, this title focuses on the Civil War allowing readers the opportunity to explore three story paths as they learn about four important events in the war. An overview of what led to this crisis in our nation's history introduces the book. Somewhat confusing at first, this approach to historical events presents a far more realistic and problem solving scenario for young readers than the time line approach. After the brief overview surrounding the beginning of the Civil War, the reader is plunged, one by one, into four important events, including the battles at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, and must make a decision about what side to favor and what action is taken. The text is written from a young person's point of view, drawing that aged reader into the action. The approach realistically provides the complexity of decision making and emotional demands necessary at the time not only by the president and generals but the average citizen as well. Period photographs, contemporary illustrations, and maps enhance the text, and a time line puts it all into perspective. A glossary, an index, and sources for further study are included. A perfect approach to get the classroom involved in history beyond memorizing dates and events. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
