13 Colonies: A History of Colonial America
When I found this e-text in iBooks, I was thrilled. Our 5th grade students will be 1:1 with iPads in the fall of 2013, and I discovered the perfect interactive book to support their social studies curriculum!
My joy was dashed, however, after downloading a sample chapter from the book to preview. At first I was only disappointed with the comma errors and weak paragraph flow. I then became disgusted by the lack of editing when John Rolfe's last name was spelled differently within the same paragraph. I finally became appalled when a bold title heading announced "Pocahontas Marries John Smith," when in fact, the text below explains that she wed John Rolfe. Inexcusable and unacceptable.
Authors Schulman and Erani should be ashamed of their poor editing. We expect our students to write clearly and accurately; certainly authors who are providing our students with factual information should do the same.
Schulman and Erani have four other books for sale on iBooks. I hope they have been edited more thoroughly than 13 Colonies.
