Amazon.com description: Product Description: Welcome to PowerPlus Books. This new imprint, which will be launching in Fall 2001, is aimed at grades four to eight, written at the fifth grade reading level. (PowerKids Press Books are at the third grade level.) The PowerPlus imprint is designed to explore a wide range of subject areas, especially history and science, to meet the needs of upper elementary and middle school students. These books help students with research, reports, projects, and assignments. Supplementing the curriculum and classroom work, these books offer students a level of specificity and detail that a chapter in a more general textbook cannot supply. Be sure to check out our subscription program for great savings.

The first series in the PowerPlus imprint is a 12-book collection: The Library of American Lives and Times. Coming in Fall 2001, these books are comprehensive biographical treatments of important Americans, emphasizing not just their lives, but the times in which they lived. Each book is 112 pages with dynamic four-color photos through out. Text is designed to make the navigation and comprehension of these more extensive supplemental books an easy transition from the third grade material under the PowerKids Press imprint.

The origin of New York, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the United States today, reaches back over 350 years ago. Before New York was New York, it was the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, founded in 1624. Although New Amsterdam lasted only forty years before it was taken over by the English, the Dutch presence in America was to influence culture in the Northeast for centuries to come. Among the Dutch legacy handed down to the present day is the story of New Amsterdam's mostwell-known leader, Petrus, or Peter Stuyvesant.
