Regular readers of this blog know that I periodically contribute to another blog, Mad About MG History. MG stands for Middle Grade, of course. The purpose of the blog is to provide information for teachers and librarians who are engaged in working with middle grade students.
Since today is Pearl Harbor Day, I devoted this particular blog post to: “December 7–A Day That Will Live in Infamy.” I reviewed recommended books for middle grade students to learn about the attack on Pear Harbor on December 7, 1941, and to study numerous other aspects of World War II that occurred in the Pacific. I point out in my post that many of the issues facing the world today are not new. Our nation and its citizens faced similar problems three-quarters of a century ago.
