Gr 4–7—Arranged in a question-and-answer format, these books offer concise, accessible, comprehensive looks at important eras and events in U.S. history. Both titles have richly colored, detailed illustrations and photographs; maps; time lines; and large, clear print. Tables of contents are set up as a series of questions, such as, "Did Dr. King have kids?" "What happened to Dr. King?" "How did Hitler become so powerful?" "Why did Japan attack its neighbors?" The answers are worded in kid-friendly language that provides enough detail to explain the complexities of the era or person.—Maggie Chase, Boise State University, ID
