Reviews

Series Made Simple

The authors recount the tragic circumstances of a number of devastating events in simple, straightforward language. Readers learn how the cold weather affected the rockets on the Challenger and that laws requiring more lifeboats were made after the Titanic sank. The books are easy to read, if not overly engaging. The images are a mix of stock and archival photographs, with most about a page in size. VERDICT Suitable introductions for young readers. Purchase as needed.
