Reviews
A Visual Dictionary of a Pioneer Community

"Bobbie Kalman's 'Visual Dictionary' titles are excellent elementary-grade coverages, offering 32 pages each of detail for young learners." —The Midwest Book Review, 04/08 "The 'Crabtree Visual Dictionaries' series is a well-designed, researched and illustrated set of resources perfectly suited to students in the elementary grades. The set consists of four volumes which are beautifully detailed and illustrated, each one dedicated to a particular historic community...The mix of text and illustration is well-suited to young readers and researchers. It is clear that every effort has been made to preserve historical authenticity and to present it in a way which will appeal to readers from 6 to 11. As well as the excellent full colour photographs and illustrations, there is glossary and index in each book...Highly Recommended." —CM Magazine, 03/08
