School Library Journal - 04/01/2023 Gr 4–8—These titles take a famous event from history and highlight figures often overlooked in other accounts. Readers will learn about immigrants processed through Angel Island, enslaved people who helped build the White House, and how the Transcontinental Railroad affected Native peoples like the Cheyenne. The Thanksgiving title includes information about Tisquantum, while the Juneteenth book offers ideas on how to celebrate the holiday. Captioned images, time lines, a glossary, and source notes provide additional support for readers. All "Read Woke" books include a caution to think critically about the images, questions to help readers reflect on and connect to the information, and a suggested reading list. VERDICT A strong series that provides a fuller representation of historical events. - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
