From Publishers Weekly:

Combining brief fictionalized accounts of historical events with factual information, profiles of notable women and men, and related projects, these titles adopt a playful approach to teaching American history. Revolution describes life in the 13 colonies and the road to independence, including the Boston Tea Party, the winter at Valley Forge and the Battle of Yorktown. The hands-on sections include a play about the Boston Massacre, a game in which players take on the roles of a customs officer and a smuggler, and a recipe for "Old Glory Ice Cream." Biographies of Phillis Wheatley and Thomas Paine, as well as sections on pirates, secret codes and an early submarine, round out an already comprehensive volume. Less focused, American Indians explores the legends, traditions and customs of the many tribes that made their homes in what is now the United States. Various spreads are devoted to coming-of-age ceremonies, Hopi architecture, the whale hunts of the Makah and other topics. Activity ideas range from weaving baskets to making spirit figures and playing traditional games. The snappy, fast-paced lessons are short enough to whet the appetite without being overwhelming; lists of books and videos and information about visiting historic sites are appended. Ages 8-12.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-Two entries in a series that takes a variety-store approach to specific events and people in American history. Indians focuses on various tribes (Quinault, Maidu, Hopi, Paiute, Crow, Iroquois, Cherokee) and geographic areas, and introduces important legends, beliefs, and ceremonies. The book also includes intriguing projects, games, recipes, and first-person accounts. Revolution offers short chapters on events leading up to and including the war, along with sidebars of historical trivia, plays for readers to act out, art projects, and other activities. Readers get glimpses of the hard life of British soldiers; important people (e.g., Daniel Boone, Benjamin Franklin, Phillis Wheatley); and events (the Boston Tea Party and the Battles of Lexington and Concord, among others). These fine resources are written in a chatty but authoritative style and illustrated with black-and-white drawings, diagrams, and sketches. Teachers will discover many new ways to bring history alive, while students will get hooked on the fascinating tidbits of information. Each title ends with an "If you want to know more" section that describes books, videos, historic sites, and projects. Interesting, exciting presentations.
