The Great Trouble: A Mystery of London, the Blue Death, and a Boy Called Eel (2013)
3.84 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This was a good book. I read it because I really enjoyed Ghost Map, which happens to be what inspired the author to write this book. She adds a nice human element to the story of one of the worst outbreaks of cholera in London which lead to the discover of it's cause and the be...
Titanic: Voices From the Disaster (2012)

review 1: This was a fascinating nonfiction read with tons of primary source documents and first person accounts. The stories included throughout this book really hit home how horrible the Titanic tragedy was and made me understand this historical event on a new level. Several discussions ...
Abe Lincoln Crosses a Creek: A Tall, Thin Tale (Introducing His Forgotten Frontier Friend) (2008)

Knit Your Bit: A World War I Story (2013)
3.82 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This is an entertaining story that helps children learn about an earlier time in U.S. history. While we've read several picture books together about WWII, this is one of the only ones we've seen that discusses WWI. I love that the narrative is short enought to keep the attention...

review 1: I checked this out from the Library to read to my three year old. We don't watch television, but we read many many books. I am always trying to find ones that will educate as well as keep her attention. At three this is sometimes hard to do. However, she really enjoyed this b...
