"Designed to align with the Common Core standards, this format works well, allowing authors to provide background and context and explain cause and effect in a way that students will easily understand. Books are objective, staying within mainstream historical opinion and offering numerous points of view, including those of political, regional, and ethnic groups such as Native Americans. . . .These books are effective introductions that will improve student understanding and research skills, making them a good choice for early middle level readers." - School Library Journal
