Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Scrapbooks of America from School Library Journal on May 1, 2003

Cover: A Song for Sung Li: A Story about the San Francisco Earthquake

In format, these slim fiction titles are reminiscent of scrapbooks. While each narrative tells the story of a 12-year-old at the center of a historical event, boxed notes give readers some background information. In addition there are numerous full-page color and black-and-white period reproductions and photos. Unfamiliar words are highlighted in the text in a distinctive font and defined in the glossary. Each book concludes with a time line, suggested activities for creative writing and discovering family history, and a craft. Older children who like picture books and reluctant readers will gravitate to these books.

—Jean Lowery, Bishop Woods Elem
