blurb

This is another book I would definitely use in my classroom. I would read it to my students to let them know it is okay to stand up for what you believe in and it is okay to be different and out there. It is a good book to show the kids to believe in themselves to stand up for their rights and to do the best thing.

This is a biography book. It is about an immigrant, Clara. When she arrived in America, she didn't speak any English, and she didn't know women had to work and how they traded an education for labor. She worked by day (shirtwaist factory) and studied at night time. She didn't accept that women were treated unfairly so she made a difference and stood up for what she believed in. The author's note has sources and facts to where she wrote the book.

I would use this book to my class to describe how the atomic bomb was first discovered and used. The illustrations are amazing and show just how an atomic bomb explodes. I think my students would get a kick out of learning about this.

This is a nonfiction book. It also won a Newbery Honor award. It is about a Uranium atom, and how if you placed it next to radioactive materials, it split into two! A German chemist discovered this. This is the story of the atomic bomb. A very interesting story that many people probably don't know about. The author includes true facts about this discovery and chemist.

This is a fairytale book. It is a collection of very popular and well-known children's stories. It includes books such as Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, and the Little Witch. All the stories are perfect examples of fairytale books because they are made-up creations but that are realistic and interesting to young children.

Just Being Audrey | Margaret Cardillo

This is a biography. It is about a fashion icon and actress named Audrey Hepburn. She is most known for her appearance in “Breakfast at Tiffany's.“ This biography includes her life before all that, and how she grew up in a Nazi-occupied Europe. She learned that kindness surpasses all and spreading love is the best thing to do. This book encourages children to be kind and never let mean people get to you. The illustrations reflect accurate facts.

Who Was Walt Disney? | Whitney Stewart

This is a great book on Walt Disney, but I'm not sure if I would read it to my classroom only because it doesn't have to do with education or history, and it might make some kids feel bad if their families can't afford to take a trip to Disneyland or Disneyworld.

This is a biography children's book about Walt Disney. He loved to entertain people. He grew up on a farm in Missouri. He loved the small-town feel, and this reflects in his Disneyland attractions and streets. This book reveals the “man behind the magic.“ This is a great biography of Disney and the creator behind it with facts and sources.

This is an interesting book, and I didn't know about Ann Cole Lowe, but I enjoyed reading it and learning about her life. I would read this to my classroom to show my students how to never give up on your dream no matter what challenges you may face. Like Ann, she didn't let her race get in the way of fulfilling her dream of becoming a fashion designer.

This is a biography about the life of fashion designer, Ann Cole Lowe. The book begins with how she loved to sew at such a young age because her grandmother taught. At the age of 16, her mother died. She wanted to do something to make her mother proud, so she began sewing dresses & selling them as her own little business. Since she was African American she had to study fashion in a separate room at school. This book uses facts and has sources.
