School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-5-These titles offer sound information in a simple, yet attractive format. Each weathered-looking page of text faces an illustration. The art is a blend of photographs, artifacts, and drawings from the period. "Did You Know?" boxes offer additional facts. While the large-print text suggests a primary-grade audience, the information will be most meaningful to competent independent readers already familiar with the times (no chronologies are provided). Schools is similar to Kerry Graves's Going to School in Pioneer Times (Capstone, 2001). Additional titles where demand warrants.-Michele Shaw, formerly at Yorkshire Academy, Houston, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
