Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
History can often be bewildering with so many dates, people, and facts to keep track of. What better way to organize the details than through infographics? Charts, maps, illustrations, and graphs keep information cohesive and fun in this winning display of U.S. History. Students get a quick look at historical happenings in a modern way that is easy for them to understand and relate too. Complicated stories and historical events are succinctly delivered in engaging ways with brilliant and colorful graphics. While several pages are crowded and the line of information is hard to follow, most are appealing to the eye and fun to look through. Mound builders, the slave trade, the first colonies, and the Homesteading Act are just a few of the historical events students can read about. Other books in the “Super Social Studies Infographics” series include, Economics through Infographics, US Culture through Infographics, and World Geography through Infographics. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr; Ages 10 to 14.
