Race and American Law – School Library Connection
Harris’ explanations are clear and allow young readers to easily understand complex subjects. The topic overviews are ideal for history, civics, or classroom libraries. Harris’ texts are perfect for middle schools where value is placed on content that is not overly simplified but also not too difficult to grasp. Recommended.
