Positive Reviews for Energy and Illegal Immigration

Two publishers forwarded positive reviews of two different books to me yesterday: Energy (Amicus Publishers) and Illegal Immigration (ABDO Publishers). Midwest Book Review wrote of Energy:

“‘Energy’ packs a lot of everyday learning into 26 well- planned pages that also present enjoyment of learning as an integral part of the package.”

And the other review came from the Lincoln Public Schools Library Media Services Department in Nebraska. They chose Illegal Immigration, among other books from ABDO, for their 2010 MOSAIC Multicultural Literature Exhibit. They wrote:

“Your book titles were chosen for inclusion in our 2010 MOSAIC Multicultural Literature Exhibit. Our review committee members considered them an excellent example of literature containing cultural content. Thank you for helping students find positive, authentic experiences of themselves and others in books.”

And of Illegal Immigration, the reviewer rated the book as “excellent” and wrote:

“This book is a desirable addition to the high school library. It is written in a straightforward matter, with bulleted significant details. History of the issue along with a multiplicity of viewpoints that are often presented in sidebar quotes, statistics or summary statements are included. The photos and illustrations are appropriate and help the reader understand the issue. The considerable timeline helps students understand the historical significance and how immigration has evolved in the United States.”
