Children's LiteratureMost children in school today learn about Pearl Harbor and World War II. What they might not learn are the events and people involved in what lead up to this attack. These issues, persons and events are detailed in this title in the "We the People" series. This includes Japan's growing imperialism and drive for power in the Pacific, deteriorating relations between the United States and the Japanese Empire and the creation of the Axis powers. The attack itself is covered in enough detail to make clear the horror of the day. The moments before and directly after the attack are also detailed. The photographs are an important part of telling this story and these mostly black and whites have been chosen well. Also included are a timeline, glossary, important people and want-to-know-more lists and "Did You Know?" This is an excellent resource for any classroom study or library. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 7 to 12.
