Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Norah Piehl
This timely publication (Jamestown celebrates its 400th anniversary in 2007) provides an inviting introduction to the study of colonial history. Placing the Jamestown settlement in the context of other colonial endeavors (including those by the French and Spanish), the easy-to-read narrative provides a balanced, unromanticized treatment of the early English colonization. A short final chapter discusses the importance of Jamestown for the fledgling United States. Brief chapters and a good balance of illustrations and text also help draw in young historians. The numerous illustrations, many in color, include lithographs, oil paintings, engravings, and woodcuts, as well as a modern map. Scattered sidebars provide additional information about people and places mentioned in the main text. The back of the book includes a time line, a glossary, and a list of recommended resources (books, web sites, and historical sites). Part of the new "Turning Points in U.S. History" series.
School Library Journal

Gr 3–6
Each of these titles deals with a seminal point in American history. Alamo includes the background to the battle, as well as an account of its aftermath and some information on famous combatants. Declaration of Independence describes the unrest that led up to the signing of the famous document, how Jefferson composed it, and the uncertainty surrounding the vote for independence. Jamestown provides detail on earlier settlements in the New World, then describes the hard times that the colonists had and the settlement's legacy. The clear, concise, and dynamic style of writing simplifies the information without dumbing it down. Although one illustration in Jamestown is mislabeled, in general, the photos, paintings, and maps in these books add a wealth of information. These works will also be useful for older struggling readers, who won't be embarrassed to use them for basic information.
