School Library Journal - Mary Mueller

"Featuring the publisher’s "InfoSearch" format, which begins each chapter with a question, these titles will help students understand the causes, battles, people, and results of the American Revolution. Questions are answered in four- to six-page chapters, and the books are arranged logically, either thematically or in chronological order, and include information about women, Native Americans, and African Americans. The frequent sidebars, quotes, reproductions of period art, and informative maps blend well with the texts, and there is good narrative flow. Both readable and suitable for reports, this series will supplement history collections. –Mary Mueller, Rolla Public Schools, Rolla, MO School Library Journal November 2010" - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - Susie Nightingale

"Each title begins with an overview of the Revolutionary War and then expands on a particular aspect. The prose is clear and understandable and would be appropriate for all, including reluctant readers. In each book there is an emphasis on the use of primary sources with related questions to encourage students to develop critical thinking skills. Budding historians will gain a greater understanding of the importance of primary material. Period paintings supplement the text and provide an attractive layout. The text gives the reader a broader understanding of the war. The Home Front of the Revolutionary War is especially interesting because it details the activities of children, Native Americans, and slaves, including descriptions of daily life. For a broad examination of a crucial period in American history, this series is an appropriate selection and a helpful introduction to the topic. Bibliography. Glossary. Timeline. Websites. Table of Contents. Index. –Susie Nightingale, Educational Reviewer, Lawrence, Kansas Library Media Connection March/April 2011" - Library Media Connection

Omaha Public Schools - Diane Cox

"Part of the four book series Why We Fought, this book examines many of the battles of the revolutionary war, including some that are not often talked about at the elementary school level. The initial reasons for the war are examined. We learn about the facts of each battle, including why it was fought, in two or more page spreads. Primary image sources are used, where possible, to examine that battle, what was happening in the source, and how it would be created differently, if it was created today. The presentation of primary sources is an excellent way to introduce a more in depth form of research to younger students, and should be applauded. Maps are also included in many cases. The format of the book is easy to use. Assuming that all the books in series are done to the same level of quality, it is a set that should be in many libraries.Bolded words are found in the glossary at the end of the book. Also included are a timeline, additional book sources, internet and DVD’s about the war, as well as an inbox. Books are well bound with sewn binding. –Diane Cox, Field Club Elementary School Omaha Public Schools 12/4/2011" - Omaha Public Schools
