Overview

When is the millennium really and why is there a debate? * Who is not celebrating? * -What was the last millennium like? (Not that anyone is still around to tell us!) * You hear about the Y2K problem, but what's it all about?<P>As we count down to 1/1/00, Jess Brallier answers all the questions that inquiring minds (between the ages of 8 and 12) want to know. He strikes just the right tone and balance of info, poking fun at the paranoia, explaining some scientific concepts such as the International Date Line, and offering some fun, at-home ways to celebrate with a list of New Year's videos, including all movies with the year 2000 in their title.

Presents an assortment of facts and reflections about the importance of the year 2000, including the invention of the calendar that made it possible, historical events leading up to this occasion, predictions for the future, and possible ways to celebrate.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Looking for a cool way to celebrate the new millennium, or why it really doesn't happen until 2001? To get back to basics, all this fuss has to do with calendars. And our calendar is only one of many. But back to the party ideas and some thoughts on what the future might bring. A quiz challenges you to match predictions for 2000 with predictors from as far back as 1903. A look backward compares 1900 to 1999. A light informative look at the transition from 1999 to 2000, this is both entertaining and educational.
