K-Gr 3—Young readers are introduced to several Founding Fathers. The authors present rudimentary information about each figure using basic language, with important vocabulary concepts in bold. A mix of imagery, including artistic renderings and glossy photographs of important sites, are appropriately spaced to complement the text. Although the titles briefly discuss the legacy of each Founding Father, they don't address controversial aspects. QR codes linking related activities are included in each section, encouraging further exploration with the help of an adult.
VERDICT A very basic primer on key players in early U.S. history. Large nonfiction collections may want to consider.
