New Review! Everything World War I


Everything World War I. National Geographic Kids, 2014
“Kenney, along with historian Edward G. Lengel, introduces middle grade students to the key events and major characters of the first modern war in the 20th century. Filled with color and b&w maps, infographics, and behind-the scene photos, the book covers the events that led to war, battlefields, the home front, major personalities, and a reflective afterword which includes an interactive glossary and websites for additional investigation. One of the highlights of this book is the sidebar panels that feature various medals of valor, headgear fashion, and animal soldiers. The panel graphics are so clear and concise, it almost looks as if the reader can touch them and feel the textures and depth. This volume can be read for enjoyment by war enthusiasts, by reluctant readers who prefer nonfiction, and in grade level curriculum. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
