Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—From the early tensions wrought by the French and Indian War to the decisive days of the Constitutional Convention, these introductions delineate the Revolutionary War in a way that is compelling and informative. The sentence structure is short, direct, and engaging, e.g., "Spies used both words and weapons to fight during the war." Colorful and captioned reproductions and photos, maps, time lines, charts, sidebars, and "Fast Fact" text boxes enhance the texts. Challenging words are defined twice, first in a shaded box on the spread on which the word appears and then again in the glossary. Colonists and Constitution provide background material, while the other volumes deliver topic-specific information. Women is the female counterpart to Heroes; Nancy Morgan Hart is the only person who is in both. Sources are not cited, though each title was written under the consultation of experts in the field.
