"In honor of the Illinois bicentennial, this creative history launches the Chronicles series. Beautifully designed, the pages resemble spreads from a fictional Illinois newspaper and feature 'articles' on events ranging from Illinois' 1818 admittance to the Union to current plans for the state's 2018 bicentennial celebration. Without trying to be a comprehensive history, the book highlights major events, such as Chicago's World's Fairs and the Cubs' 2016 World Series win, and noteworthy local figures, including Jane Addams, Frank Lloyd Wright, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and Barack Obama...An elaborately detailed, impeccably organized time line follows the main text; printed on sturdy paper, this accordion-folded addition stretches eight pages, with the time line appearing on one side and an assortment of state facts, places to visit, and famous Illinoisans on the reverse. Significant curricular support is available for educators wishing to add this excellent resource to their classrooms." - Booklist Starred review

Beautifully-illustrated and hugely engaging...an exciting story of people and events whose unique legacy can still be felt today in the 21st State of the Union. Uniquely informative and thoroughly 'kid friendly' in organization and presentation, The Illinois Chronicles is ideal for ages 6 to 14 and unreservedly recommended for family, elementary school, and community library American History collections in general, and Illinois State History supplemental studies lists in particular." - Midwest Book Review

"The learning opportunities within the Chronicles and educator's guide can carry on well beyond the celebration year and may be used as launching points for future learning for years to come."Illinois State Board of Education

"Having an easy to read but detailed and informative narrative in the style of reportage and a timeline is not only unique, but will also be highly relevant and engaging for years to come." - James Cornelius, Keeper of the Lincoln Collection at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

"We are very excited to share with you the Illinois Chronicles in celebration of the Illinois Bicentennial. Illinois is the Land of Lincoln."Bruce Rauner, Illinois State Governor "I found the content to be easily implemented while providing various options that cater to the specific grade level or subject area ... I see many opportunities for cross-curricular lessons as well!" - Rob Ulm, Principal, Jefferson Elementary School

"The Illinois Chronicles uses chronological historical resources in an innovative timeline, creating a remarkable opportunity to teach us about our shared heritage, as well as help us think about the future." - Tony Smith. State Superintendent, Illinois State Board of Education
