School Library Journal - 11/01/2013 Gr 2–4—These collections of thumbnail sketches highlight strange, significant, and unusual facts about American history. By and large, each page features one fact (e.g., "The US Constitution wasn't the first American constitution") with a few sentences that explain the information. The well-curated content is peppered with information that is of use to report writers and of interest to casual readers. For example, "There is a handprint on the Declaration of Independence" and "There's no recorded proof that Betsy Ross sewed the first US flag." Accessibility for readers is enhanced by concise, direct writing and large, high-impact fonts. Informative and entertaining. - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
