My son’s 3rd grade teacher gifted him I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor as a holiday gift. I was skeptical since he is a picky reader, and then shocked and very pleased when he read it in one day. Not only that, he was full of questions about Pearl Harbor and battleships. The series is historical fiction, written from the perspective of a young boy who is experiencing the Pearl Harbor attacks, the sinking of the Titanic, Hurricane Katrina…heavy on adventure and suspense but still filled with history and fact. In my son’s case, the exciting historical fiction book lead to an interest in non-fiction books on the same subject.
