Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Send students to the library to read newspapers or magazines published when the adults in their homes were their age. You'll find that the assignment frequently prompts enthusiastic, memory-filled conversations at home. You easily can adapt that assignment to the years your 10-, 11-, or 12-year-old students were born, thanks to Jeanne Martinet. She's compiled day-by-day records for The Year You Were Born for 1982 through 1989 and youngsters can quickly discover-in class-notable events (other than their arrival!) that happened during those years. Have them pick one or more as a topic for additional research and updating. Those events, too, should stir dialogue at home-"Do you remember when...? Judy Lanfredi's colorful illustrations enliven the respective years' worth of newsworthy events and historical tidbits.
