Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book, one of the series "Let Freedom Ring," attractively presents information about the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in America. The book also briefly covers the onset of industrialization in England that preceded its development in the United States. Each double-page spread includes a color illustration, photograph, or map, increasing the interest level. Separate text boxes offer additional information on the different views the founding fathers held on industrialization, the lives of mill workers, and the importance of tariffs to the development of industry, as well as their divisive effect on the country. The use of red or dark blue flag-type frames on many pages enhances the attractiveness of this book. The book also includes timeline of the period, as well as a list of interesting places to visit that are related to early industrialization. Included is the address of a publisher sponsored Web page that connects to a list of up to date links. The book also includes a glossary, an index, and a list of other books for further reading. The book does include a significant error. A spinning jenny is identified as a machine that could "spin eight threads into cloth at once." In fact, a spinning jenny was able to spin cotton or wool into eight spools of thread simultaneously, but did not create cloth, which still needed to be manufactured on a loom. In spite of this error the book should be a good source of information for report writing, but also would be enjoyable reading for any student with an interest in United States history. 2003, Bridgestone Books, Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 3-5-Supplemental resources for students who are studying these topics. Industrial Revolution outlines the key people of this time period and their contributions. Francis Scott Key will serve as a resource to units on patriotism or for those studying the American flag or national anthem. Nat Turner provides an example of a slave's life and will enhance a unit on slavery. Each well-organized book has interesting color and black-and-white illustrations, reproductions, and photographs.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
