The Great Chicago Fire

On a Sunday evening, October 8, 1871, a fire started in a barn in Chicago. Before the fire died out in the early morning of Tuesday, October 10, it had cut a swath through Chicago approximately three and one-third square miles in size. Nearly 100,000 people were left homeless, and 300 people lost their lives. What happened? Find the answer in this brightly colored graphic novel.

Good Read October 24, 2011
Reviewer: Malcolm & Jean Kennedy from Walton, OR United States  
I read this one too! I love to Read and I love History! I can't stop myself from Reading the books I buy for my kids. This one was no exception! A fun way for them to learn History about the Chicago fire. My kids eagerly read this book over and over yours will too. It has great pictures and the comic book style will keep them interested. You won't be sorry for adding this to your order.
