Children's Literature - Beverly KobrinSend students to the library to read newspapers or magazines published when the adults in their homes were their age. You'll find that the assignment frequently prompts enthusiastic, memory-filled conversations at home.

She's compiled day-by-day records for The Year You Were Born for 1982 through 1989 and youngsters can quickly discover-in class-notable events (other than their arrival!) that happened during those years.

Judy Lanfredi's colorful illustrations enliven the respective years' worth of newsworthy events and historical tidbits.
