The 1910s Decade in Photos

A Decade That Shook the World

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

Experience the 1910s through this photo-driven book. Newspaper headlines in the 1910s shouted out tragedy and disaster. Read how the TITANIC sinks, World War I erupts, and a deadly flu virus kills millions. The 1910s were a frightening time in the world. Mexico and Russia slipped into revolution. America hoped to stay neutral in politics and war, but found it could not. U.S. troops first went to Mexico, then the bloody trenches of Europe. The combat of World War I was worse than any that had come before it. People called it the war to end all wars. Read about what proved to be an amazing decade in history.

". . . each 64-page book in this outstanding series features an informed and informative accompanying text . . . strongly recommended for both school and community library collections."

Children's Bookwatch, January 2010

"The book's focus on a limited number of specific events gives the author the opportunity to explore them in depth."

Booklist, April 1, 2010

"The mainly color photographs and illustrations drive the easy-to-read narrative . . . simple sentence structure works well for older students needing hi-lo resources."

Library Media Connection, March/April 2010

"Characterizing a decade in one slim book involves making choices--Corrigan has done quite well at selecting nineteen significant events or developments for each decade since 1900 . . . The author’s style is brisk, illustrations often fascinating; the abundance of period photos, graphics, and popular art can help promote visual literacy."

Children's Literature

". . . the book is informative and well-researched, with a fine choice of topics."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, March 2010

"Attractive and readable, this series will be popular with browsers and beginning researchers."
