Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Straightforward and easy to read, these books describe various aspects of Colonial life, including work, home, and school, and offer brief, simplified discussions of the political climate of the time. While some historical detail may be glossed over for readability, general outlines are accurate. Amsterdam covers the period 1624-1664 and Boston, 1760-1773. France covers the period 1639-1760 in Canada, Acadia, and Louisiana and deals largely with life in the first of these colonies, the land around the St. Lawrence River Valley. Full spreads focus on particular topics and include sidebars as well as captioned, color and black-and-white illustrations. Helpful maps and time lines at the beginning of the books give context and background to the material that follows. A picture and brief description of the area as it is today offer readers a way to connect the past and present. The writing and content are geared toward the younger end of the spectrum, but some reluctant readers will find these titles helpful and relevant.
