Editorial Reviews

"[An] exciting series... Ms. Hakim braids multiple narratives together to bring alive material long dead to children's imaginations."--The New York Times Book Review "Joy Hakim didn't rewrite history. But she did make it a whole lot more fun to read."--Education Week "Readers young and old will find themselves amused, amazed, and engrossed by this searching, opinionated survey. In every sense a fresh look at our history." --Kirkus Reviews "Merits every accolade, starting with the most personal: I couldn't put it down."--Washington Post Book World "The liveliest, most realistic, most well-received American history series ever written for children."--Los Angeles Times "A thorough and accurate narrative of our nation's history."--The Philadelphia Inquirer "I think this is the best American history written for young people that I have ever seen."--David Herbert Donald, Harvard University; Pulitzer prize-winning author of Lincoln "When master storyteller Joy Hakim wields her pen, you're in for a breathtaking adventure."--Teaching K-8 "An attention to detail and drama alike make these recommended choices for not only readers ages 8-13 but for entire families."--Children's Bookwatch "Absorbing, real and even fun to read."--Voice of Youth Advocates "Books of real substance that speak directly to kids."--Jean Fritz, author of Shhh, We're Writing the Constitution "One of the best nonfiction series of the decade. Impossible to put down."--School Library Journal
