School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8Similar in style and reading level to the ``World at War'' series (Childrens), these three volumes cover different aspects of World War II. All of them are competently written and clearly presented; however, no documentation of sources is provided. Pertinent black-and-white photographs accompany almost every page of text, making for an attractive, accessible format. Vive La France covers the perilous history of those French citizens who sought to undermine the Nazi occupation of their country via guerrilla warfare. Little else has been published for this grade level exclusively on this topic. Go for Broke and Our Burden of Shame discuss subjects amply covered in other sources. Both Sheila Hamanaka's The Journey (Orchard, 1990) and Jerry Stanley's I Am An American (Crown, 1994) are more compelling and notable than Sinnott's title.Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
