School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 PreS-Gr 2—Six books, each on a different U.S. iconic symbol or cultural object, are presented to young readers in this series. The bald eagle, the National Anthem, the U.S. flag, the Liberty Bell, and the Constitution are identified in multiple contexts, with simple yet descriptive text to complement the imagery. Because the associated concepts are more advanced than other titles for this age group, these books are best suited to first and second graders, although the books' patriotic content will have far-reaching appeal. Some readers, especially Spanish-speaking children who are new to the States or young readers with relatives who have recently immigrated, will need additional explanation and context as Latinx populations are not visually represented in this series. This could be a drawback for professionals who serve diverse communities. Still, the books do an excellent job providing information to young readers and can be adapted to fit different size collections and curricula. VERDICT A basic series in Spanish for early readers that may require additional contextual information and explanation. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
