I'm one of the authors. I'm not writing a review but to explain that we wrote this book for our high school English as a Second Language students who study U.S. history. We tried to present concepts at the mainstream high school level but in simplified language. ESL students/newcomers frequently do not have the historical backgrounds that mainstream students have, so these vignettes present background and context along with language at roughly a 4-5th grade reading level. The book was marketed for middle school students, but we wrote and used it at the high school level.
