School Library Journal Review of American Place Puzzlers

These attractive volumes introduce young readers to historical sites across the United States. Using simple, easy-to-read text, the authors present modern engineering feats, like the Hoover Dam and the Statue of Liberty, piece by piece. All of the titles follow a similar format: readers are given multiple photographic and narrative clues (“I am painted orange,” “My base is stone and concrete”) before the big reveal. The images are saturated with color, and the hints provided are solid. VERDICT: A lively, interactive way to get youngsters interested in history and geography.
