Video Review of Great Historical Fiction book

video, War that Saved My Life, book review
When students explain why they don't like historical fiction, they usually say something like, "It doesn't grab me in the beginning,"  "It takes a while for the action to start," or "It starts off too slowly."

My job is to convince them to hang in there, that once the setting and the characters are set in the time period, the action starts.  But with this book, there's no need to do that.  It starts off with a bang! Literally!

Here's my latest review of a great book for upper elementary and middle school students, filled with Growth Mindset themes!  
I've created a novel study for this book which is available on Teachers Pay Teachers here.  You can also buy a Crossword Puzzle and Word Search of all the key names and places here.

If you're back to school, have a great week!  And if you're still "summerin'," enjoy the last of it!
