1968 by multiple authors - OPTIONAL

1968: Today’s authors explore a year of rebellion, revolution and change by multiple authors, 198 pages.  NON-FICTION  Candlewick Press, 2018.  $19.  

Content: Language: PG (2 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  



This is a collection of fourteen stories that highlight different events that took place in 1968.  The stories are broken up into different months with stats from the war as well as different headlines from those months.  My favorite stories were “The Wrong Side of History”, “Running with Sharp Schticks” and “Running into History”.  The topics were diverse and covered places and events from throughout the world.  

As a whole, I wouldn’t recommend this book unless you are teaching this time period because a lot of the stories assume you have an understanding of the history taking place at the time.  The content includes police brutality, drug use, deaths and also mentions STDs.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson.
