Nowadays it's no big deal or a girl to travel seventy-five miles. But when Charlotte May Pierstorff wanted to cross seventy-five miles of Idaho mountains to see her grandma in 1914, it was a very big deal indeed. There was no highway except the railroad, and a train ticket would have cost her parents a full day's pay. Here is the true story of how May got to visit her grandma, thanks to her spunk, her father's ingenuity, and the U.S. mail

Children's literature, briefly by Michael O Tunnell( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is not a comprehensive volume or an in-depth study, but an overview written to shed light on children's literature and its use with young readers. Our job as teachers, whether university or elementary, is to introduce and illuminate children's books for our students. These books can offer insight, comfort, pleasure, and growth without having to be explained or used as objects of study. Yet some comment, if it is secondary to the books and does not become too self-important, can help teachers and children alike find their own ways to good reading. - Preface

This collection of writings by trade book authors, public school teachers, and college-faculty offers support for using children's literature in history education. Divided into three parts, the Introduction asks "Why Teach History to the Young?" (Terrie L. Epstein). Part 1, "The Creative Process," addresses the process of writing and illustrating historical fiction and nonfiction with essays that include: (1) "Perspectives on Historical Fiction" (Joan W. Blos); (2) "Historical Nonfiction for Young Readers: An Artist's Perspective" (Leonard Everett Fisher); (3) "Voices from the Past" (Milton Meltzer); (4) "Finding Ourselves in History" (Pam Conrad); and (5) "Bring 'Em Back Alive" (Russell Freedman). Part 2, "Research and Other Considerations," compares and contrasts history textbooks and trade books by examining content emphasis and coverage, along with other stylistic concerns, in the essays: (1) "The Content and Writing of History in Textbooks and Trade Books" (Carl M. Tomlinson; Michael O. Tunnell; Donald J. Richgels); (2) "'I Wanted to Be There': The Impact of Narrative on Children's Historical Thinking" (Linda Levstik); and (3) "Unmasking the Fiction of History: Children's Historical Literature Begins to Come of Age" (Michael O. Tunnell). Part 3, "Practical Applications," shares teacher-tested strategies for structuring history units around the reading of children's and adolescent literature and includes the essays: (1) "a Look at Other Trade Book Topics and Genres" (Richard Ammon; Diane Weigard); (2) "Approaches for Using Children's Literature to Teach Social Studies" (Judith S. Wooster); (3) "Teaching the Holocaust through Trade Books" (Gail Tunnell; Jeannie Ammon); and (4) "Breathing Life into the Past: The Creation of History Units Using Trade Books" (Anita Downs). (Eh)
