CriticasGrade 4-8–Each of these books offers primary-source material written in simple Spanish while introducing readers to famous American historical figures. The books provide basic facts on each figure, along with photographs, maps, informative inserts, a timeline, and a bibliography including websites. Most pages have fewer than 15 sentences, and the pictures have easy-to-understand captions. The history is recounted in an unbiased and informative fashion. The individuals selected represent important historical periods and are balanced with respect to gender and ethnic groups. Readers will absorb the essentials of each period with the photographs, and learn details from the text. Written for low-level readers, these reference materials will capture their attention and reward them with pertinent details. Librarians will need this set to round out their historical collections for their young researchers.
