Each book in the series focuses on a different historical event, mainly natural disasters. She brings these time periods back to life by introducing a young boy, who is placed on a twisted journey while trying to overcome obstacles to survive the toughest times in history. Part 1 Connecting on a personal level, I was first introduced to the books while interning in a first grade classroom last year.

What most surprised me was how vividly these books still live in my imagination, how vividly I remember the characters and plots, almost as if I lived with and through them myself.

One writer for children who does exactly this, and whose books my year old son and I both loved, is Lauren Tarshis of Westport. Each is gripping, honest, and provides lessons in resilience and hope for young readers. A mother of four, Tarshis, who is working on her 7th novel in the series about the Battle of Gettysburg, was kind enough to answer my questions about, among others, where she found her inspiration for the series, her writing process, and why kids love to read about disasters they really do!
