The Colony of Virginia

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
With a minimum of text that is filled with information, Coleman offers a brief history of Virginia from the founding of the colony in 1607 to its emergence as a state in 1788. In a mere 24 pages the surface can only be scratched on such topics as Jamestown, the growth of the tobacco industry, slavery, and Virginia's role in the forming of the new nation and yet this is a serviceable introduction and supplement to a classroom text. For every page of text there is a photo, line drawing, or painting on parchment-like paper. Pages are decorated with small ships, an inkpot and quill pen, and scrolls with important facts. Overall this is a visually attractive, factually accurate book and part of a series that covers the thirteen colonies and the lost colony of Roanoke. 2000, Rosen Publishing Group, Ages 8 to 10, $19.33.
