ALA Booklist
Though each title in the Turning Points in U.S. History series purports to present a dozen "incredible facts" about historic moments in American history, it's perhaps more useful to call them important developments in history-making events. Boston Tea Party offers a nuanced take on why the British tea taxes were such a significant problem for American colonists. Each "fact" is presented on a two-page spread, which includes color photographs or illustrations, inset boxes with additional information about key players or policies, and a bare-bones account of the chapter's information in a bulleted list. Although the nugget-sized bites of information will be appealing for reluctant readers, they may need to seek out additional information elsewhere for a more comprehensive view.
