Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Magi Evans
It is hard to resist a challenge, so when students open this book and find that the first page presents two statements and the statement that only one of them is true, they will want to read on to find out which it is. This book traces the colony of Georgia from the original Native Americans through the Spanish explorers to the founding of the colonies by the British and on through the Revolutionary War and finally to statehood. Author Kevin Cunningham covers the subject with language and format sure to engage young readers. In addition to large print and ample spacing, several pages feature a single important fact in a larger, more child-like font that attracts the eye. Important features for teaching research skills, such as a table of contents, an index, a timeline, a glossary, maps, and a bibliography are included. Each page contains a colorful illustration with an appropriate caption. Even the front and back cover includes eye-catching illustrations and facts to entice readers to open the book and begin reading. Cunningham presents facts about trades, the roles of women, how children were educated, slavery, and the importance of Savannah as a port city. A part of the "True Books: The Thirteen Colonies" series, this book is an excellent choice for school and classroom libraries. Reviewer: Magi Evans
