Booklist - Julia Smith

"Top 10 Series Nonfiction.  Readers receive two lessons in one: the history of an iconic symbol of the U.S. (the flag, Statue of Liberty, etc.) and instruction on how to learn through primary sources. The use of archival images and documents reinforces the series’ goals admirably." - Booklist
