Another great on from Reminisce Books

I must admit, I bought these blindly. However they are hard backed, full of photos and stories that will engage any young reader. My kids steal these from the book shelves in the middle of the night with flash lights. I know, but I never let them know I know. :) As a homeschooling mom, you couldn't ask for a better history book. The pictures bring the text alive! Quality is just as good, if not better, than DK books.

Excellent Oral History!

So many textbooks are a dry series of graphs and charts with very little of interest to the everyday reader. This book, while not a texbook per se, teaches in a lively "You Are There" kind of way. The stories in this book, as well as others in this series, are taken from people who actually lived during these trying times. This is the way history and basic social studies should be taught; children (and adults!) would learn ten times as much and have fun doing it!The vintage photgraphs scattered throught the book are a very good collection gleaned from the people whose stories are shared as well as old stock photos.This sort of book is one to be treasured, but one that rarely comes along. Reiman Publications has a series of these books on similar topics (the home front during WWII, motoring memories, women being the backbone of the family, etc.) Buy them ALL and keep them close to home. They will enrich your lives immeasurably.
