Many of us choose the books we read through recommendations from friends. It’s fun to watch how popular a book or series becomes in our classroom after one child gives it a rave review. That has recently happened with the I Survived series by Lauren Tarshis. This series (six books currently) is historical fiction and is more challenging than the Magic Tree House series which combines fantasy with historical fiction. This would be an interesting series to read with your child this summer. The author looks at these disasters through the eyes of children.
If you click on the book, you can read the first few pages.
