Horn Book Review

Each book in this series features basic information on a notable American, from childhood through adulthood, with emphasis on each person's legacy. Illustrated with photos and reproductions and written in often plodding prose, these books are adequate for classroom assignments but won't generate much enthusiasm for their subjects. A timeline, reading list, and list of websites are appended. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Let Freedom Ring titles: [cf2]Ulysses S. Grant, Jefferson Davis, Sojourner Truth, Robert E. Lee, Harriet Tubman[cf1], and [cf2]Abraham Lincoln[cf1].] (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
