As more school districts undergo the painstaking task of curriculum integration, resources that offer children an opportunity to live vicariously in times and places they cannot experience any other way become increasingly necessary. Whether two teachers are covering the same topic in separate classes (e.g. English and history), or designing a thematic unit with the school librarian, this book will assist all parties in the selection of high quality literature. In this handy guide to nearly 800 award winning historical fiction for Kindergarten through 8th grade, Beth Zarian literally spans the globe. Entries are first divided into three sections - American history, world history, and myths and folklore - then chronologically from prehistoric times to present day, and finally by grade level. Each entry is accompanied by a short annotation. For anyone wishing to teach historical facts in an entertaining way, Around the World with Historical Fiction and Folktales is the only way to travel.

Industry Reviews
