Sally S. Isaacs is a Heinemann Raintree author.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-These well-organized volumes introduce their subjects in an accessible manner. Each two-page chapter contains a brief text and a mixture of reproductions of period drawings and paintings, as well as archival and modern reenactment photographs. The first two titles cover how colonies and cities got started and grew, describing communication, houses, occupations, childhood, education, clothing, and food. Readers will be able to contrast today's cities and way of life with the very different living conditions in the past with the help of the copious illustrations. The third title provides an overview of plantation life, alternately describing the lives of the planters and slaves. In all three titles, insert boxes highlight information and often serve as captions for the illustrations. Challenging or unfamiliar words are highlighted and explained in the glossaries. Each book also contains a recipe from the period.
