Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This educational book is part of the "Fact Finders, The American Colonies" series highlighting the origins of America's first thirteen colonies. The books excel in their easy-to-read presentation, full-color photographs and illustrations, glossary, and bibliography. Readers learn about the area's American Indians, including the Pequot, Podunk, and Mohegan, which were Algonquian tribes. All were peaceful except the Pequots—which led to the Pequot War. Yet even the peaceful tribes would come to see the colonists as their enemy. Readers also learn of the struggles of the colony's early Puritan settlers, their work, life, and religious habits, and how Connecticut became a state. Included in the six chapters are interesting "Fast Facts," such as Connecticut's nickname as the "The Constitution State" because its governing constitution was the first written in North America. Young readers also learn that Connecticut workers excelled in manufacturing—even being the first to craft brass buttons in the colonies. Many labored as apprentices for seven years to learn a skill or to pay their passage to America. Also covered are the French and Indian Wars, the Revolutionary War, the Declaration of Independence, and Connecticut's law that made slavery illegal. There is even a time line, spanning from 1633 to 1788, when Connecticut became the fifth state to join the United States. Readers can gain more information about the colonies by perusing the links offered at FactHound.com. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 9 to 12.
