    I honesty learned so much from this book. My two sons, ages 8 and 9 and I were all very drawn into this book by the very large, remarkable, real life photos in this book that go hand and hand perfectly with the information on each page. I did not know anything about dust storms or the dust days so this book really enlightened me. Kids, most likely 2nd grade and up would thoroughly learn about this time in American history all from reading all of the information in this book.

The photographs from that time really make you feel like you are back in the dust days. A must have for any classroom discussing American history.

    Mommy says: Great book for kids of photographs and easy to understand explanations of the Dust Bowl and its effects on the US and Canada. Dramatic imagery. There was a LOT of discussion at storytime the night I read this to my 6yo and 8yo.

    1. Personal Reaction: When reading this book I thought it would be very useful to use in a classroom when learning about the dust bowl.

I would recommend to use this book in a classroom. 2. Purpose/Use in the Classroom: This book would be very beneficial to use for a social studies unit. I believe children in s 1.

I would recommend to use this book in a classroom. 2. Purpose/Use in the Classroom: This book would be very beneficial to use for a social studies unit. I believe children in second through fourth grade would enjoy this book. Mostly children in second grade could have this book read to them. Some things that could be taught when reading this book would be conflict. Realizing that the dust bowl is the main conflict, it affects with the lifestyle that all these people live in. For example, many people had to move causing them to become poor, people getting sick even dying, or even all the houses getting affected because of the storm. Some nonfiction conventions that were in this story were title, headings, and bold writing for each chapter. The color that was used in the pictures were actual pictures that were in black and white. To prove that the time frame was from a long time ago. 3. Diverse Perspectives: Something that I noticed was the way in which people use to live in back in the day. It shows how people fled from the dust bowl through wagons instead of cars. Or even, the houses people use to live in it was made through wood and the dust could still get through.

    Personal Response-I really enjoyed this book because it has large real black and white pictures from the Dust Days. I chose the book because my 97 year old great grandma was a child during the Dust Bowl and I wanted to learn more about what life was like for her. Purpose in the Classroom- This book would be great for second to fourth graders as an independent read during a history lesson on the Dust Bowl. The sentences are short and only a few per page so it will be easy to read. The vocabulary Personal Response-I really enjoyed this book because it has large real black and white pictures from the Dust Days.

Purpose in the Classroom- This book would be great for second to fourth graders as an independent read during a history lesson on the Dust Bowl. The sentences are short and only a few per page so it will be easy to read. The vocabulary is easy as well and for the few challenging words there is a "New Words" list in the back of the book. Other nonfiction conventions are bold faced type, headings, captions for pictures, and an index. One fun activity students could participate in using the book is making their own burlap shirt like children in the Dust Days had to do (they did not have money for clothes). The back of the book has a list of materials and directions how to make the shirt so it is a great resource. Diverse Perspective- I enjoyed how the perspective of the book is geared towards the children of the Dust Days and what their lifestyle looked like. Students will find reading this informational book more enjoyable because of the diverse perspective.

    This book was very informational, there were pictures of those times and even different stories of how people lived. This is more of a social studies book and can be used for nonfiction for 5th graders when learning about the Dust Bowl days. The language was a bit hard at times, the children might not understand them sometimes but the words are easy to understand if you use the words around to find out what they mean.
