Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that Georgia, which was established in 1733, was the last of the original colonies? Were you aware of the fact that Georgia went from the poorest to one of the richest parts of America after the invention of the cotton gin? Have you ever heard of "tabby," a plaster made of seashells and limestone powder that was widely used to build colonial homes in Georgia? These and many other facts are compiled in this volume in the "Life in the Thirteen Colonies" series. In Georgia, Doak does a good job of explaining two hundred years of history in 115 pages of heavily illustrated text by using a crisp writing style laced with a great deal of social history. The author begins with the early colonists and their relations with Native Americans. She then dedicates significant space to topics such as the nature and spread of slavery, women's status, and the political currents that swept the colony into the Revolutionary War. Readers will enjoy studying the humble historical roots of a state that now features so much commercial prosperity. 2004, Children's Press, Ages 10 to 14.

Gr 3-6-These books cover life in the title colony from the time of European settlement to the aftermath of the Revolutionary War. Following a chronological structure, each one discusses the major events, personages, and development in the colony and does a remarkable job of balancing major happenings with details about the daily lives of the residents. Information about the Native tribes in each area and the way their lives were irrevocably changed by the coming of the European settlers is also included. Full-color and black-and-white archival reproductions, maps, and newspaper clippings from the time add authenticity and interest, and highlight boxes offer anecdotes, curiosities, and explanations of regional idioms. Back matter includes a recipe, a craft activity or game, and a highly visual time line. Though it's unlikely that kids will pick them up for anything other than reports, they will be surprised at how interesting these books are.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
