Gr 3–5—Those who enjoyed the initial releases in this series (which SLJ lauded as "perfect") will want to check out these new additions. As with the previous titles, these books lay out with precision and clarity the essentials of these crises, as well as their greater significance. The 1918 Flu Pandemic is a particularly strong selection, enlightening readers about the historical and scientific context of the outbreak and its lasting consequences. Brimming with photos and captions, these books are as eye-catching as they are informative.
