By the time we begin teaching, our students will be seeing the 1990's as a time in history, as opposed to a recent decade. This book shows young people through real pictures and kid friendly explanations just how much went on during this decade. The book focuses a lot on the political climate of the world at the time, such as Bill Clinton being elected, the destruction of the Soviet Union, the end of the Aparthied, as well as other trends going on during the time such as the massive increase in computer and cellphone owners, music and fashion trends, Y2K survivalists, and other aspects that defined that period. I think this book was really good way of introducing a decade that really did bring about a lot of change, and really impacted the the decades following. The pictures are scattered throughout in a way that makes children feel as if they are reading a picture book as opposed to a more informational type of text. ( )
