December 7th marks the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Nearly 2,400 Americans were killed and 1,200 wounded on this fateful day, yet it’s not a topic that is covered in great detail in most schools. Pearl Harbor Day took place before even most of our grandparents were born! This is why it’s important to let books help teach our kids about this horrible historical event, and teach them about why it’s so historical. If you are looking for a few great books that will teach your kids about Pearl Harbor and what life was like back then, these books are perfect!
