Charlie Samuels has written many books about American and world history for young readers.
Grade 3–6—This volume walks in the footsteps of the popular "ology books" (Candlewick), but its construction is more suited to libraries, with most pieces glued down, rather than fully removable. With many bright graphics, colorful foldout flaps, and interesting trivia, the book will appeal to teachers and students alike. It includes a range of facts from the common (Declaration of Independence's signers and our national symbols) to the often-neglected (the significance of songs such as "Oh, Shenandoah," and "Ol' Man River"). Even the time line is done with an interesting twist, imagining the lifespan of our nation represented in the rings of an old tree. Well-written, well-researched, and interestingly laid out, this book is sure to be a hit.—Sarah Provence, Churchill Road Elementary School, McLean, VA
