The stories are always about a kid (usually 11yo) who lives through historical disasters, and we learn about those disasters through his/her eyes.
The tales are well-written and include facts- as well as historical fiction to hold the audience’s attention.
They are exciting and sad; gripping and profound; tragic and heartwarming. You can always count on the main kid-character surviving...but not always the other people in the story.
Your child and you will certainly come away with the intended morals:
*War is Hell. (D day, Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, American Revolution, Civil War etc)
*People can be evil: (Hitler, 9/11, maybe in a few years, Trump will be a subject of one of her books)
*The newest inventions aren’t always the best: (Titanic, Hindenburg)
Don’t turn your back on nature: (Tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, floods)
Animals are wild; don’t turn your back on them either:: (sharks, grizzlies)
And molasses is...well. We are reading that one next.
Really can not recommend enough.
My dad was a member of the United States Army during the Cold War. In the mid to late 80's he served as a border patrol guard between East Germany and the west. Perhaps because of that, and my own resulting exposure to the horrors of World War II, I am passionate about WWII education. I selected this book for my 3-5 bookclub at the library where I work, sight unseen. I knew Tarshis would deliver. And she did!
