Review
(The following is a combined review for The Connecticut Colony; The Delaware Colony; The Georgia Colony; The Maryland Colony; The Massachusetts Colony; The New Hampshire Colony; The New Jersey Colony; The New York Colony; The North Carolina Colony; The Pennsylvania Colony; The Rhode Island Colony; The South Carolina Colony; The Virginia Colony; and ) Gr 3 – 5 — Every title opens with a "Find the Truth!" page that asks readers to determine whether two statements are true or false by the book's end. Brief chapters cover the profiled colony's precolonial indigenous peoples, European exploration and settlement, economy and daily life, Revolutionary experience, and eventual statehood. Sidebars profile important personalities and signers of the Declaration of Independence. Detailed maps, captioned period images, and "True Statistics" pages enhance the texts. Although there are many extant sets on the 13 colonies, Cunningham's clear writing and the attractive layouts will draw browsers and aid report writers, making these books good choices for elementary collections. --Mary Mueller (Reviewed November 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 11, p64)
