Sixties Trilogy #01: Countdown by Deborah Wiles
Sixties Trilogy #01: Countdown

Kassie, August 4, 2012

Take a trip back in time, complete with breaking news, features on people and events, and favorite 45s you may be too young to have owned, but wish you had.

This is a terrific take on history that teens and tweens can get into, and a great reminder for the rest of us of a time of fear and struggle for equality.
