5.0 out of 5 starsLove these books!
Reviewed in the United States on January 1, 2019
My 7 and 9 year olds both love these books! They are easy reads but still have enough content to keep their interest. We love them because they are educational and through a child’s prospective rather than just informational! We especially love ones that they have actually lived through, we have lived through, or somewhere we have visited! Provokes a conversation outside of the book!

My grandson absolutely loves these books. Upon completion of each book he seems to have a well informed grasp of the time period and is always excited to tell me and others all about what he has read. I am slowly gifting him with the whole series. As a grandmother, I think it is very important for our young children to understand the many hardships that made our forefathers they people that they are and the world what it is today.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat book (series) for young readers...

This book series covers significant events in our history and is presented in a format that the reader craves for more (exactly what it is intended to do). Whether it be Pearl Harbor or the Sinking of the Titanic or anything in between, this book series meets all established criteria for young readers leaving with a desire to learn more and to move onto more concise readings. Highly recommended.
I love these books. Some are easier to read (content-wise) than others I will admit. My son loves them and got me to read them and I'm glad. This was so detailed packed I was floored. My grandfather was in this one and I'm thankful the reality of history is still burning bright.
My son LOVES these books. They are perfect for older kids. True stories of survival and overcoming the most incredible disasters in history. These stories stick in his mind and encourage him. This story is his favorite.
Story gives a child’s perspective of the events for middle school interest. However the back story at the beginning of the book causes the story to be slow and frustrating. I would have liked to have more details of Hawaii rather than the backstory back in New York. Feels like two stories.
