". . . each 64-page book in this outstanding series features an informed and informative accompanying text . . . strongly recommended for both school and community library collections."

Children's Bookwatch, January 2010

"Attractive and readable, this series will be popular with browsers and beginning researchers."

School Library Journal, April 2010

"Characterizing a decade in one slim book involves making choices--Corrigan has done quite well at selecting nineteen significant events or developments for each decade since 1900 . . . The author’s style is brisk, the illustrations often fascinating; the abundance of period photos, graphics, and popular art can help promote visual literacy."

Children's Literature

"The mainly color photographs and illustrations drive the easy-to-read narrative . . . simple sentence structure works well for older students needing hi-lo resources."

Library Media Connection, March/April 2010

"Reluctant readers will be drawn to these pictorial histories . . ."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2010

". . . a very well written book that will relate well to many young readers."
