Series Made Simple

This series makes crucial events in U.S. history accessible to younger readers. Through clear writing and organization, the books describe the causes, the outcomes, and the conclusion of each turning point. Photographs, sidebars (which often contain facts and critical thinking questions), and relevant and appropriately placed maps and diagrams support the text. Photographs, while credited, aren’t always captioned; however, readers can gather most pertinent information from the text. Dust Bowl and Industrial Revolution make cross-curricular connections to science and technology. Great Depression doesn’t show any people of color within the book, and Women’s Suffrage Movement does not mention the suffrage efforts or struggles of Indigenous or black women. There are no sources or recommended titles listed in the back matter, but a link to a curated list of websites is included. VERDICT Purchase individual titles only as needed to support student research.
