From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4–These attractively illustrated books introduce the history and significance of two of America's national symbols. In Liberty Bell, students will learn about the purchase of the bell, its Revolutionary War history, its symbolic use by abolitionists, and its famous fissure. Bald Eagle reviews the historical debate over the national bird, common traits associated with it, depictions of the bald eagle on currency and on the Great Seal, and facts about the species itself. Skeens's contemporary watercolors give a friendly and accessible cast to the symbols and events under consideration. With their large font, short sections, and clear writing, these titles will satisfy teachers looking for straightforward introductions to core democratic symbols for early primary-grade students or for elementary-aged new Americans.–Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI
