I Survived the Hindenburg Disaster, 1937

I Survived the Hindenburg Disaster, 1937Written by Lauren Tarshis


Students love the I Survived series and this book will be just as popular. In May of 1937, the Hindenburg, a massive German airship, caught fire while attempting to land in New Jersey, killing 35 people. Hugo and his family are on the Zeppelin traveling to New York when the disaster happens. While the book is short, it is full of historical facts and written in a way to keep the students interest. The I Survived series is great historical fiction for young readers.

I love that the end papers have, questions and answers about the disaster, author notes, more Hindenburg facts, resources, and a selected bibliography.
