Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-These titles discuss places and symbols that are important to Americans. Simple text and archival and current photographs help students learn how each site was built and why it is significant. The "Fact File" in each title lists interesting trivia. For example, readers discover that the largest memento ever left at the Vietnam Memorial was a motorcycle. Many colorful reproductions appear in Independence Hall, and photographs of the Challenger Memorial and a family receiving the casket flag after a funeral add poignancy to Cemetery. Photographs of the damage done in the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent repairs make Pentagon an up-to-date offering. Better organized and better written than corresponding titles in the "American Symbols" series (Children's Press), these books serve as useful introductions.-Pamela K.
