1607: A New Look at Jamestown

One of my favorite series of historical books for children has a new entry, just in time for the 400th anniversary of the historical Virginia settlement—1607: A New Look at Jamestown by Karen E. Lange, with photos by Ira Block. This series features well-written historical narratives accompanied by the wonderful photographs for which National Geographic is so well known. What makes the photos even better in this case are the historical re-enactors who have been photographed, thus making the history literally come to life. We see, for instance, a settler firing a musket, a blacksmith at work and a Native American woman cooking, as well as archaeologists at work at Jamestown. I still vividly remember my own tours of Jamestown when I was a girl, and soon I hope to take my children back for a visit.
