“Amazing America indeed! From Paul Revere to Paul Bunyan, from Yorktown to New York City—all are here in this treasure trove of Americana. The books are divided into spreads, each with a few illustrations and lines of text. Every aspect of the layout is designed with burgeoning readers in mind—clean lines and shapes, sans serif fonts, and a subdued palette of blue and orange. The writing is informative and, like the layout, plain and unaffected. Sidebars feature statistics and thumbnail bios. Yet given the name of the series, the inclusion of World War II battles that took place in Europe seems slightly incongruous. VERDICT Overall, this unique series is attractive and informative—a sound purchase.”

“The Amazing America series introduces readers to interesting people, events, and symbols that relate to the United States. Each book focuses on 12 particular items. American Battles looks at battles from Lexington and Concord to Iwo Jima, excluding the more controversial wars from Vietnam to Iraq. The paintings and war photos—especially the cover shot of General Eisenhower talking to soldiers, extend the text. American Inventions contains some expected discoveries, like the light bulb and airplane, but Kevlar, computers, and blue jeans are also covered. American Monuments and Symbols, discusses the flag, the Presidential seal, America’s bird (the bald eagle), and several different monuments including the Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore. America’s Natural Wonders takes readers on a tour from the Grand Canyon to Niagara Falls with stops along the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains, among others. Each of the books’ 12 subjects gets a few paragraphs of text and several sidebars. Illustration captions add a few more snippets of information. Fact sheets, glossaries, and further instructional material round out the treatment. There’s not enough information here for reports; rather, this is a quick intro to familiar names on the American landscape.”
