Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "These books in the new Daily Life in U.S. History series provide a solid and helpful view of key periods in American history for elementary-schoolers. The main text is clear and age-appropriate, although not always focused on daily life. For example, Life during the California Gold Rush largely focuses on narrating the events of the gold rush, starting with Sutter's Mill; only one chapter deals with daily-life topics such as shopping, clothing, and entertainment. Each book features the spread A Day in the Life, which provides additional elements of daily routines. The books are ideal for classroom use, with a variety of standards-friendly activities. Sidebar features helpfully guide students through the publisher's website and through several well-chosen primary sources, and Stop and Think activities in the back matter suggest projects addressing topics such as vocabulary, opinion writing, and making connections to today.--Aronin, Miriam Copyright 2015 Booklist"
