Summary

A rich collection of essays by both educators and the authors of children's and young adult books... - The New Advocate Students across the country have tagged history as their number one most-disliked subject in school. In The Story of Ourselves, the contributors focus on the need for a stimulating history curriculum with the application of children's trade book literature as an indispensable ingredient for such a curriculum. The book is a collection of writings by trade book authors and public school and college-level educators, designed to offer support and instruction for teachers who decide to use children's literature in their history/social studies programs. Included here are such well-known authors as Russell Freedman, Pam Conrad, Milton Meltzer, Joan Blos, and Leonard Everett Fisher.
