Gr 5-9-These titles compare favorably with those in the "Spirit of America: Our Presidents" series (Child's World) in scope, readability, and visual appeal, and have the advantage of the added Web sites. In Grant, Alter begins with Appomattox, and then backtracks to the president's early life. His unpopularity and undeserved reputation are mentioned several times. In Adams, Feinstein, too, takes a key event, Amistad, as the starting point, and then relates Adams's early life, political career, presidency, and final years. Several pages of annotated sites follow. The texts feature many color photographs, some from the Internet and with the toolbars (including the URL) showing. These books are thoroughly researched and strongly supported by Web sites.-Debbie Whitbeck, West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
