Library Media Connection - Melinda Elzinga, Librarian, Boulder (Colorado) Country Day School

"“Getting lost” in history is our wish for young researchers, and students will do just that in this series. They will find plenty of information included in fact boxes, primary source materials, maps, photos, drawings, and paintings. The series consistently shows what is familiar and foreign to the modern reader; respectfully incorporates how slavery and minority groups were treated and integrated in American colonial life; and outlines gender and generational roles. Each volume progresses chronologically, beginning with first European settlers and concluding in the mid-1700s. Because of the descriptions of familiar topics set historically, kids will make an instant connection. Useful not only for history, but science, social studies, and other classes, students will enjoy comparing their life to early colonists. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
