Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of United States Landmarks from School Library Journal on April 1, 2014

Cover: Arlington National Cemetery

An attractive, organized, and informative series. Each title consists of two-to-four page chapters of concise, engaging text. The authors keep the information age appropriate without oversimplifying. Captioned illustrations mostly consist of archival and modern-day photographs, many of which show the monuments from a variety of perspectives—during construction, from above, inside, and outside. A period drawing, for instance, shows what the White House looked like following its destruction by the British in 1814. Real winners.
