Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- These small-format books leave much to be desired. Each title has one or two large-print lines per page, but there is too much repetition from one book to the other to make purchasing all three of them worthwhile. The writing is oversimplified, e.g., "The Bald Eagle Seal has special words on it"; "Special words are on the Liberty Bell." In White House , five different presidents are pictured but not identified, with no explanation that the photos are from different times in history. The books have large, clear photographs, mainly in color, and period reproductions; some artwork appears in more than one title. The time lines include the 50-year marks, with one date identified for the symbol. No other milestones are noted, which does not add to understanding. "The White House was first built in 1792. It was finished in 1800." Better choices on patriotic symbols are available.-Sharon R. Pearce, Longfellow Elementary School, Oak Park, IL
