Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 03/15/2013 The question-and-answer format in these books in the Good Question! series mimics the way children ask about a given subject. The questions are related to a general topic but do not follow a linear or chronological narrative. They also vary widely in scope. The format works well for Why Did the Whole World Go to War?, where Sandler includes questions ranging from the very broad, such as “What started World War II?,” to the much narrower, including “Who were the Tuskegee Airmen?” and “Why was Anne Frank hiding?” The answers, usually one to three paragraphs long, provide a digestible level of information and detail. Although the answers to very specific questions sometimes touch on larger issues, they tend to stay focused on the particulars of the matter at hand. The illustrations feel a bit younger than the text but depict the subject matter appropriately and engagingly. A time line at the end of each book sums up the material. - Copyright 2013 Booklist.

School Library Journal - 04/20/2013 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 - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
