Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
For readers studying early American history in school or who have a special interest in the period, this volume about the United States' first warship, The USS Constitution is worth taking a look at. It is in the frigate class and is in remarkable shape after 203 years, thanks to many caring individuals. The book details the kinds of materials and workmanship that went into the making of this fine ship. Stories of how life might have been for sailors and passengers on the ship are presented in an informative manner, allowing the reader to relive moments of ship life and battles at sea. Photographs and sketches help illustrate the parts of the ship and the battles she engaged in while in service. The reader is given a realistic view of the everyday activities aboard ship, from the meals to various types of work, the sickbay and battle action. The book contains an index, glossary, bibliography and information about the hours that tours are conducted of the ship in Boston, MA. 2001, Lerner Publication, $25.26. Ages 8 to 14. Reviewer: Barbara Youngblood
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-These series titles purport to bring historic sites to life, but tread a fine line between fact and fiction. Each book begins with the background of the particular site, and then introduces people who were or might have been associated with it. A concluding chapter brings the site up to its present restoration. Jane Addams is the first occupant of Hull-House readers meet, followed by two children who belong to clubs there; a worker who comes to hear about women's rights; and Florence Kelley, Alice Hamilton, and Julia Lathrop, who worked alongside Addams. The characters on Ellis Island include a young Russian immigrant, an immigration service worker, an inspector, a young translator, and a family leaving there to live in the United States. The time on Old Ironsides occurs during the War of 1812, and readers encounter a sailor, a former passenger, the ship's doctor, and a boy who carries gunpowder around the ship. Unfortunately, none of these characters comes to life as an engaging person, whether actual or fictional. The authors write in a dry, slightly condescending tone. The main value of these volumes will be in sparking interest that leads to further reading of either historical fiction with these settings or solid nonfiction and biographies. The books are lavishly illustrated with photographs and drawings.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
