wonderful and historical fun
Meghan McCarthy has a knack for pulling out the most interesting aspects for children and creating a book that is accurate and enthralling without the feel of non fiction. My boys loved the illustrations and the pacing and were amazed that this great book was actually about a real event in history. Try her book on Seabiscut for another historical and inspiring picture book winner. I will be reading both to my library students this year. I will use the actual tapes of the broadcast for the kids after we read this book...I am doing this with 1st-5th grades.

A day of panic & pandemonium or entertainment & fun? According to CBS radio - Columbia Broadcasting System - there was a Martian invasion occurring. It was a play put on by actors from the Mercury Theatre on CBS radio. This tale is informative, educational, fun to read, comical, and entertaining, since the readers know that this is fiction. *Delightful escape from reality for young readers, especially those that enjoy sci-fi stories and fascinating "pranks."
