Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
Written in rhyming verse, this picture book briefly tells what led New World colonists to declare independence from the United Kingdom, fight a war for their freedom and form a new government and nation: The United States of America. Great Britain's King George imposed one tax too many on his subjects and they rebelled. But, as Professor Barry O'Connell of Amherst College says, the fight for freedom and justice never ends. The watercolor illustrations are nice in a cartoonish sort of way. I did like the inclusion of three children as observers in many scenes of the story. The author mentions Thomas Jefferson writing the Declaration of Independence and quotes the part about all men being created equal, endowed with the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. On July 4, 1776, the leaders in Philadelphia approved Jefferson's document, which is why we celebrate on July 4th. The book makes a good jumping off place for discussing American history. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-As in In 1492 (Scholastic, 1991), this author/illustrator collaboration shows that difficult concepts of history can be made understandable to young children. Bjrkman's watercolors steal the show here, as they give youngsters an authentic look at what it was like when the colonists rebelled against British rule. Architecture and artifacts are accurately portrayed. Colonial dress, military uniforms, and even King George's robes are rich in detail. Marzollo's verse, though sometimes stilted, is readable and carries the story along. A preface, ``Helping Children Understand the American Revolution,'' gives background on our country's fight for independence. In 1776 deserves a place on most library shelves.-Dot Minzer, North Barrington School, Barrington, IL
