Attractively designed, the books in the Colonial People series present and discuss the roles of individual trades from colonial America. When that trade involves making a product, the presentation includes a description of the craftsman’s process. The publisher indicates the reading level as four, and while the books’ relatively large type and square format are consistent with a fourth-grade audience, the readability level appears to be several grades higher. The Shipbuilder introduces the master shipbuilder as well as the many skilled tradespeople needed to make a sailing ship. In each book, the informative text is illustrated with tinted engravings and paintings from earlier eras as well as excellent color photos of artifacts and replicas and reenactments of historical trades in Colonial Williamsburg. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
