Series Made Simple
The six titles in this series make comparisons between current topics of interest and their historical counterparts. Toys, cooking techniques, or communication methods of the past are then compared to current technology and the possibilities of the future. Information is brief and particularly American in its focus, but a diverse spectrum of people are represented in the photographs. Short, simple sentences in a large, easy-to-read font are combined with stock photography and plenty of white space in this early reader series. VERDICT History series aimed at the youngest readers are often a welcome addition to libraries, and these titles use an engaging format.
