Ice! The Amazing History of the Ice Business by Pringle - OPTIONAL

Pringle, Laurence Ice! The Amazing History of the Ice Business, 68 p. Calkins Creek, 2012.  $18.  NON-FICTION.  Content: G.  

I know it is easy now to go to your refrigerator and get a glass of ice at a push of a button.  But until the 1820’s, ice was something that only the wealthy could afford outside of winter.  Pringle takes something that may be obsolete and makes into interesting, readable history.  For a business that really only lasted 100 years, it certainly makes for interesting reading.  If your students really enjoy non-fiction, this is a solid addition.
