"Composed of three titles that could be used independently, this resource works well as an integrated set...the format, reading level, and research and activity ideas in this set make it suitable for middle school and high school. Biographies and Primary Sources support the Almanac, bringing basic material together in one place to make this a worthwhile purchase for student use."
-- VOYA (April 2000)
"Hundreds of photos, illustrations, and sidebars enhance the text of these commendable volumes."
-- The Herald (Columbia, SC) (02/13/00)
"Each volume is well illustrated with b&w photos and reproductions that enhance the text. Because of its timeliness and ease of use, this set will be a welcome addition to any high school reference collection. Highly recommended."
-- The Book Report (Jan/Feb 2000)
