Interesting series of books for young people (it gives an age range of 7-10) wanting to learn about the past. This one is about World War II. It gives the details and explains the events leading up to the war and during the war. It is a well done introduction to World War II. I will certainly look into some of the other books in the series.

Recommended to me by on of our first graders, this book is a bite sized synopsis of World War II. However, while the book is small it does not shy away from the content. High vocabulary levels and an enormous amount of information make this a worthwhile book for readers of any level. Fans of the "Who was" series will find themselves right at home. -WS
Wonderfully illustrated, kid-friendly overview of world war II- gotta read them all!

Great for upper elementary grade kids interested in history.

Straight forward children's book that gives the basic facts of the war. Would be good for children researching the war.
