My third grader (and her whole class) LOVES these books. They are thrilling books and great way to introduce major historical events--particularly those that can be difficult to talk about with younger kids, like 9/11. I haven't read all of these yet, but I like how they don't gloss over the scary realities of the events (without being too frightening), and they highlight the heroes and the survivors.
