Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Two-page chapters with titles such as "The Wall Goes Up" and "Party in Berlin" trace not only the events of November 10, 1989, the day the Berlin Wall came down, but also the events before and after that historic date. Maps and black-and-white photographs trace the history of Germany during and immediately after World War II, and accompany the text's brief and somewhat choppy discussion of the division of East and West Germany. Although color photographs and bland but informative text sufficiently describe the history of the Wall itself and the events that led to its dismantling, the book does not adequately place the events of German reunification within the larger context of the end of the Cold War in other European countries. A glossary is appended, but some of the definitions seem overly general and/or value-laden. A timeline and index are also included. Part of the "Dates with History" series. 2004, Smart Apple Media, Ages 9 to 12.
