Reviews

The history of Hispanic Americans is attractively and concisely presented in this almanac designed for middle and junior high students....Controversial topics are treated in a balanced manner. Excerpts from primary sources, such as a description of Aztec human sacrifice written by Jesuit missionary Jose de Acosta, add depth and interest. The layout of the almanac is clean and inviting. Text boxes, time lines, illustrations, photographs, and maps add information and visual appeal. This resource will be helpful to students looking for background or summary information on a specific topic....[t]his almanac should be a useful reference tool for this important and often-assigned homework subject. -VOYA

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
