    Teachers, Use This!

    Trade books such as this one provide a means for history to come alive. Integrating this book into 4th & 5th grade Social Studies classes takes children out of the dry and dull text book mode and into the 'real world' which is, after all, what we're supposed to be doing. This book offers us, as teachers, a unique opportunity to grab at the background of our students and relate it to other things (like living in a wagon or being a Native American and forced to go to school a thousand miles away.) Not a book for casual reading, but certainly a book for a professional educator.

    Not so wild review for Children of the Wild West

    (I was assigned this book as part of the several we must read for a Social Studies Methods course.) This isn't the sort of book that you would want to read in one sitting; jump around. The pictures are very nice and they could potentially spark some interesting classroom discussions, but, unfortunately, the wording seems very similar to that of a elementary-school classroom textbook. However, if you're a history buff, I suppose this book would be for you.
