Children's Literature - Wendy RicciThis book provides a unique approach for young people who are interested in important events of this time period and how events relate to one another. The book is divided into four sections: Politics, Life in the 20th Century, Arts and Entertainment, and Science & Technology. Colored bands across each page identify the four sections as the book progresses chronologically from 1900 to the present. A continuous time line runs along the bottom of every page. Children have a choice in the way they read through this book. They can read across the page to learn about one particular theme, or they can read up and down to compare events in different categories during the same general time period. A glossary and index are included as well. This "Scholastic Timelines" book provides excellent springboard for more in-depth research! Also available is The United States in the 19th Century.
