School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Supplemental resources for students who are studying these topics. Industrial Revolution outlines the key people of this time period and their contributions. Francis Scott Key will serve as a resource to units on patriotism or for those studying the American flag or national anthem. Nat Turner provides an example of a slave's life and will enhance a unit on slavery. Each well-organized book has interesting color and black-and-white illustrations, reproductions, and photographs.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego (c) Copyright 2010.

Horn Book Review

A simple, dull text combines with bland color photographs and maps to introduce the geography, regions, plant and animal life, natural resources, and people of this continent. This formulaic book, little more than an encyclopedia entry, provides a lackluster look at its subject. A list of resources and a map-reading exercise are appended. Glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010.
