School Library Journal - 04/01/2024 Gr 3–5—Frequent images, text in manageable chunks, and the allure of learning something secret will draw young readers into this series. The various titles walk students through overlooked and misunderstood facts surrounding important events in history. Plentiful photos, illustrations, and maps complement the text. Readers might learn that gold miners grew ill from their limited diet or see a political cartoon of American patriots tarring and feathering a British sympathizer. Fact boxes, captions, and graphic organizers offer additional explanations of how Bill Cody recruited cowboys for his Wild West show or the names of famous pioneers. A glossary, maps, a timeline of key dates, and a suggested list of books and websites for further reading are also available. VERDICT These books are sure to attract readers with their promise of the unknown. Handy for classroom instruction and individual reading. - Copyright 2024 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
