Voices from the Second World War
This was a really interesting text. In it people who lived during WWII in various capacities - as children, as part of military forces, refugees, survivors - gave interviews, often to school children about some of their experiences. The interviews range from about 1/2 a page to several pages and are arranged chronologically. I love that the voices are being hear, experiences are being shared.
That being said, the text was quite long and it took awhile for me to finish. For my library it is too advanced (especially as my 1st - 5th will soon be a PreK to 4th). I can easily see this in a middle school or high school because the primary source information is fantastic.
