From School Library Journal:

Gr 3 Up—This revised edition takes a look at U.S. history, from the exploration of the New World in the 1400s to the present day. For the most part, this edition is similar to the previous one (published in 2003). New content includes the Boston bombing of 2013, the War on Terror, the death of Osama Bin Laden, and a focus on globalization and sports. Natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina, and additional environmental concerns are detailed. Presidential coverage is expanded to incorporate the election of Barack Obama, while other new topics include the growth of the Tea Party Movement and controversy regarding guns. The book has increased in size, allowing for larger images, font, and charts, and the color quality is enhanced as well. Visually attractive, the volume features more than 750 images directly related to the text that will draw in readers, giving them the feeling that they're walking through the Smithsonian seeing countless photographs, objects, advertisements, posters, artwork, maps, and diagrams for themselves. Arranged chronologically into 18 chapters, each section begins with a time line and an overview of the period. VERDICT Though not much has changed in terms of content, most students will find this book an enticing introduction to American history.—Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District
