The Irish Potato Famine by Dennis Brindell Fradin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's kind of sad that a children's book about the Irish potato famine is published under the series title Great Escapes, but the author does a great job explaining how many Irish escaped to England, Canada, America, and Australia. I didn't know that so many went to other places than America, so I learned something from a kid's book!:) I loved how primary sources were used, too. There is a glossary, timeline, index, and a notes section with a detailed list of sources used.
