If you mention something that someone else has written, you need to give them credit by referencing them. The Harvard Referencing System is one of the preferred layouts for these references. It is a relatively strict way of arranging the bibliographical information. This tool takes in the raw information - author, title, year of publication - and creates the reference in the correct form.

Books That Bring History Into Context. As Katherine Paterson writes in “Why Historical Fiction?”

Books That Bring History Into Context

“History gives us a pair of powerful eyeglasses with which to examine our own times. It is hard to look directly at our present reality because we are both too myopic and too faint-hearted.” History is alive, and historical books provide opportunities for young readers to experience times and places that, although not their own, have the potential to influence their understandings about the events of the past, the ways in which history both shaped and was shaped by individuals and groups of people, and how those people and events affect present realities.

Furthermore, literature can provide multiple perspectives on history and historical events, giving voice to those whose perspectives have been excluded from other accounts. The books featured in this post demonstrate the power of children’s literature—regardless of genre and text type—both to provide information for young readers and to tell the stories of history.
