Civil War based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The book Civil War is filled with great information for young readers of varied ages and abilities. Clear headings and plentiful "white space" make the text organized and easy on the eyes. High-quality photos and illustrations enhance the text, while insets on many pages allow for a deeper understanding of a topic. Historical quotations are embedded throughout the text; these were helpful as my 8th grader used this book for a research paper. A timeline in the back of the book provides a solid overview of critical events from 1860-1865.
