Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-The first title, written for first and second graders, is a fictionalized story about Oakley's childhood. Young Annie's father is caught in a snowstorm and the girl and her younger brother trap birds for their family's food. Crockett, which is suitable for second and third graders, covers the frontiersman's life to his last stand at the Alamo. Each chapter begins with a tall tale that relates to the material that follows. Oakley is illustrated with cartoon color art and Crockett with realistic, ink-and-watercolor pictures that often cover spreads. Both titles are adequate additions to most collections.-Lynda S. Poling, Long Beach Public Library, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
