Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
History can be one of the most difficult subjects to teach children. The world has changed so much in the last hundred years that children can find it difficult to relate to figures long dead and who have no impact on their daily lives save for a brief mention in a history text. It takes a very creative instructor to create a curriculum that will make history interesting to all students and that will generate enough of an interest that children will wish to learn more and retain that knowledge. Harrison and Rappaport have written fourteen hip hop songs combining important facts in American History with popular culture. The songs are quite clever and will appeal to fans of hip hop of any age. However, it will take a very clever teacher to adapt the songs to classroom use. The lyrics are printed side-by-side with additional information about concepts and phrases used in the songs. An introduction to each song with a brief overview of the period featured begins each chapter. Several appendices are included that provide additional information on important figures and events featured in the songs.
