Publisher Description:

For 5,000 years and more, libraries have been gathering and preserving writings of all kinds. They're keepers of the world's memory. They're storehouses of knowledge, and imagination, and fun. Learn about how these places and their collections of written words allow us to check our facts, find important information, share stories, beliefs and ideas, build communities, make things, and learn valuable life skills.

Category Description for You Wouldn't Want to _____ Series:

Or would you? Im betting not, especially after reading this series. These interesting books describe exactly what your life would be like if you found yourself in any of these historical situations. The extremely interesting topics and humorous illustrations and captions will captivate young readers while educating them on the very real conditions and aspects of peoples lives in the past. For instance, if you were a civil war soldier, what kind of weapons would you have to use, what is life like in the army, where will you sleep and what will you eat, what happens if you are wounded, and what happened in the famous battles of Gettysburg and Vicksburg? The fun text and variety of funny characters provide lighthearted but factual answers to those questions and share much more about each unique circumstance. Theres a very good chance that you wouldnt want to find yourself in any of these situations; however, youll definitely enjoy reading about them! (Note: although the illustrations are very cartoony, a couple of books in this series may still be a bit graphic for some parents given the nature of the situation.)

This series being revised and will have additional new content including a timeline, originally commissioned maps, "Did You Know" fun facts, and list of related well known events, places or facts.Contact us for availability. ~ Steph/Deanne
