Overview

The "Cornerstones of Freedom" detail important events in United States history. Children are given the sense of being witnesses to history-in-the-making and contemporaries of famous people who helped shape the United States into the world power it is today. Starting with the Spring 1992 titles, a brand-new format has been introduced using more photographs (many in full-color), historical engravings, and an easy-to-read typeface. Many popular previously published titles will be updated in this new format. Each book includes an index.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Ricci
A nickel is something we use every day, but how many of us pay attention to the white-columned portico and mansion found on the back? This beautiful home, called Monticello ("little mountain" in Italian) was designed and built by one of the most admired men in U.S. history, Thomas Jefferson. Visitors to Monticello will marvel at many of Jefferson's fascinating inventions and the ways in which he accommodated the needs of his family. The book includes photos and illustrations, a glossary, a timeline, and informative, easy to understand text. 1995 (orig.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Monticello, the home of our third president, is a reflection of and monument to the spirit and intellect of its builder. The construction and furnishing of this beautiful house are described as they relate to the events of Jefferson's life and to the founding of our country. The well-written text is handsomely enhanced by full-color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations of the house, gardens, and Jefferson's inventions. His beliefs and feelings about slavery are briefly discussed. An attractive update of the 1970 edition.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
