Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Some said it was too dangerous to fly. Others insisted the shuttle must take off. Lies, pressure, and faulty parts all played a terrible part in the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle in 1986. Through powerful narrative storytelling, follow the tales of people who experienced the tragedy firsthand. Meets Common Core standards for narrative nonfiction and exploring multiple accounts of an event.

Category Description for Tangled History Series:

These simple books tell the stories of American tragedies through the perspectives of those who witnessed them. This format keeps the stories factual and interesting. Each person's account is broken up into smaller pieces and the book hops from perspective to perspective while following the timeline, allowing readers to "see" the event from several angles. It has a historical fiction feel that keeps readers captivated, but without adding in characters that weren't actually there. The language is fairly simple and accompanied by photographs, making these stories accessible to younger students. I really enjoyed reading these, and I'm sure your student will too. 112 softcover pages each. - Laura
