Review
(The following is a combined review for The Haymarket Square Tragedy; The Hindenburg; The Harlem Renaissance; and Roosevelt’s Rough Riders) Gr 4-6 –These books give basic information on significant events or movements in American history. Each opening chapter describes the event or social trend, with subsequent coverage given to background factors and effects. Haymarket Square , for example, addresses the event itself; the rise of unions; the relationship (perceived and actual) among unions, socialism, and anarchism; the movement for an eight-hour work day; protest against police violence; and the trial and sentencing of those accused of inciting the riot. Chapters run from four to eight pages and are heavily illustrated with period reproductions and photos. The leading is good, with ample white space, giving the texts an open, nonthreatening look. The prose is hardly lyrical, but it recounts the events clearly. Adequate for beginning researchers, these short informational treatments may spark sufficient interest to lead to more in-depth studies. Similar to the “Cornerstones of Freedom” series (Children’s Press), the “We the People” volumes can be used to flesh out history collections.–Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA --Ann Welton (Reviewed February 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 2, p142)
