Reviews

Library Media Connection - Tena Natale Litherland

"STAR REVIEW! With a sharp focus on issues and historical context, this series serves both student researchers and general readers alike. Remarkable for their clarity of framing complex issues and historical events, titles are complimented by strong layouts and eye-catching graphics. Archival photos, maps, sidebars, brief first person accounts, biographical sketches, and charts are skillfully arranged to enhance the text. These slender volumes are unusual for presenting multiple perspectives on key concepts and explaining the effect of war on civilians. Of particular note is “What Have We Learned?” which helps students see historical implications. Teachers and librarians will find the bibliography of books, documentaries, websites, and list of related topics useful for further research, teaching ideas, and collection development. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection

Jewish Book World - Michal Hoschander Malen

"Part of a young adult Heinemann series exploring wars, their causes, and their aftereffects, Living Through World War II presents a clear textbook-like recounting of the historic factors leading to the war, life during the war years and a brief analysis of the aftermath. While not focusing primarily on the Holocaust, it contains chapters which address “First Moves Against the Jews” and “The Warsaw Ghetto” as well as a section on the concentration and death camps. Black and white and color photographs enhance the text. Also included: a timeline, a glossary, a bibliography, source notes, a list of resources for further learning including books, DVDs, movies, and websites. Recommended for ages 12-14." - Jewish Book World
