Synopsis- Have you ever wondered what really happened in World War I? I mean, as a kid, I hear and learn more about World War II but a lot of what goes on in WWI sets up what goes on in WWII! Did you know that it was when poison gasses were invented, tanks were made, and it was a turning point in women’s rights? Read this book packed with 50 facts about a war that changed the face of the world.
What I Thought- This was a great nonfictional resource. The reading level, amount of information and writing are all very kid-friendly. It includes real pictures of people, places, and events. The book has fact boxes that are an easy learning tool about what happened. I learned several things that I didn’t know about the war and I am a history buff. I learned about the sinking of the Lusitania, the Christmas Truce, and how Zeppelins were used. The book made me want to look up even more information about WWI. This is a great resource book for history classes or kids interested in history.
