Worthwhile nonfiction April 23 2015
By Carol Albert - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had ordered this previously from Scholastic Books. (I have a class set, but a few were missing.) This book was bigger in size (from Puffin) and the cover was a little bit nicer quality paper. As far as the book itself, it is easily readable for 6th-8th graders. It has great captioned photos and maps. The story shows the causes and effects that led to the Dust Bowl, how our government and private industry worked together effectively to manage the problem, how the Great Depression jigsawed into it, and how Dust Bowls are forming right now in other parts of the world by repeating the same poor practices. The book includes a glossary, index, timeline, bibliography, and list of other books on the topic.
Glad I Bought It! June 25 2014

I bought some Dust Bowl books and DVDs for my own personal interest. I can also tie them in to social studies/history lessons for my fourth graders, though none of the books/DVDs I bought were geared toward elementary students. The book really lets you imagine the unimaginable! After reading my nonfiction books and watching Ken Burns Dust Bowl DVD, I reread Grapes of Wrath and watched that old video, which made me appreciate the fiction account even more!
