Grade 4-6–Four enticing, well-documented titles that highlight aspects of our nation's history. Each one is appealing in its presentation, with large print and accessible information written in an engaging style. Revolution and Civil War focus primarily on women who played pivotal roles during these volatile periods. Biographical information is juxtaposed nicely alongside the political aspects of the wars. Minutemen pays homage to those individuals who fought bravely and heroically at Lexington and Concord, while Witch Trials delves into the hysteria that held captive the town of Salem in 1692. Full-color and black-and-white reproductions, photographs, and maps enhance the texts. The lists of important people are a welcome addition, as are the lists for further reading and Web sites. Fine additions for reports and for recreational reading.–Janet Gillen, Great Neck Public Library, NY
