Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for I SURVIVED THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG, 1863
"…Informative and breathlessly paced." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for I SURVIVED THE ATTACKS OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001:
"[Tarshis] crafts a dramatic, emotionally intense tale that takes account of 9/11's physical and emotional costs--short- and long-term--while ending on an upward beat." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for I SURVIVED THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC, 1912:
"The fast pace and intrinsically fascinating disaster story will keep readers turning the pages." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for I SURVIVED HURRICANE KATRINA, 2005:
"Expressive illustrations capture the drama of the storm and its aftermath, but the book's real power comes from its exploration of what it means to be a hero." --BOOKLIST

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
Everyone is always looking for another series like Osborne’s “Magic Treehouse,” and while the “I Survived” books are nowhere near as numerous and lack the element of fantasy that the “Jack and Annie” books have, they are strong historical contenders in the early grades category. In each of the seven books, children are placed in a perilous period of history and manage to survive. In this entry, based on archival facts, Max and Zena Rosen are Jewish children living in a Polish ghetto during August of 1944. This is, obviously, near the end of the war marginally increasing the children’s chance of survival. The children’s aunt, Hannah, urges the family to immigrate to the United States. This is one flaw in the story since quotas, at that time, would have cut off that particular route of escape. When Aunt Hannah vanishes, the children and their father assume she has left the country. Meanwhile, Nazi round-ups take all of their friends and neighbors, including the children’s father, on the trains to concentration camps. Max and Zena happen to escape while scurrying under a barbed wire fence to get berries. They run from a Nazi guard and, with the help of a friendly Polish farmer, are reunited with Hannah, now working as a Jewish partisan. The children are absorbed by Hannah’s Jewish partisan group set on destroying Nazi trains and strongholds. Author Tarshis cleverly introduces historical fact in brief sentences within the context of the story. Interesting, the word “death” is never used in relationship to Jews. They are “rounded up” or “gone,” but not massacred. For second to fourth graders, this is appropriate language. Back matter includes follow-up questions, a time line of World War II events, and recommended websites to expand the topic. A solid addition to informative fiction. Reviewer: Lois Rubin Gross; Ages 7 to 10.
