Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Each book features a national landmark and provides nearly as much information as a guided tour by a park ranger. All begin with the story of how the place came to be, and where it fits into U.S. history. Information boxes offer additional background and some surprising facts, such as the stages an immigrant would pass through at Ellis Island and the origin of the name of Mount Rushmore. The final chapter shows the landmark today and includes maps and photographs of the visitors' center and some of the things individuals might see or do while visiting the site. Much information is packed into these slim books. Excellent supplements for state reports or to complement U.S. history units.—Sharon R. Pearce, Longfellow Elementary School, Oak Park, IL
