Review Quotes

"This volume, in an excellent series, rises above others of its type because of authors like Judy Dodge Cummings. She applies impressive history-writing credentials and finely honed research skills to produce engaging text about essential global events of a century characterized by convulsive changes." --Sandy Brehl, author of Odin's Promise (WWII trilogy) and Holocaust outreach educator

"Judy Dodge Cummings takes readers on a fascinating, fast-paced journey through world history's key moments. Captivating sidebars about history-making people and events offer engaging side trips. An essential addition to classrooms and libraries!" --Rochelle Melander, artist educator and author of Mightier Than the Sword: Rebels, Reformers, and Revolutionaries Who Changed the World through Writing

"How do you explain a century's worth of world history to kids in less than 125 pages? Author Judy Dodge Cummings succeeds by spotlighting the top 30 events from the past, but it is her storytelling ability that engages the reader with specific details and rich language. Sidebars invite her audience to meet important people and learn snippets of other notable moments that can lead to further research. In today's world, looking back and understanding is more important than ever. A valuable classroom resource and a must-read for young history buffs." --Patricia Sutton, author of Capsized! The Forgotten Story of the SS Eastland Disaster
