Tomorrow is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Scholastic has some helpful resources for students and teachers, and several reading recommendations, too.
But one book in particular might be more appealing to young readers. I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor, 1941 by Lauren Tarshis. Part of the popular I Survived series, where history's important moments are brought to life in action-packed fictional tales, this title follows an 11-year-old boy who's alone on his favorite beach in Hawaii when World War II officially hits the United States. Does he have what it takes to find his way home in the midst of the bombs, the smoke, and the destruction of the day that will live in infamy?
