" This is a great read for kids when learning about Pearl Harbor. It offers a perfect mix of narrative, multiple-perspective accounts. There are also a elements of primary sources. " said.

" An excellent history book for children, Attack on Pearl Harbor relates the story of that tragic day in vivid pictures and enthralling narratives. " said.

" a great introduction to pearl Harbor. it introduces you to several different people, from various sides and gives you their point of view. it is non partial and doesn't cast judgements. another great academic book for children. " said.

" this book is about the true event that happened on dec, 7th. 11-year-old Peter Nottage, who witnessed the bombing of the Kaneohe Naval Air Station; 23-year-old Ensign Kazuo Sakamaki, who participated in an ill-fated midget submarine attack on the harbor; and 19-year-old George DeLong, a seaman who was trapped in the wreckage of the USS Oklahoma. " said.

" Of all the books for children on Pearl Harbor, this is the one that would be most appropriate if being read to or read by younger readers (3rd grade and up). Although the incident itself is a devastating event, Ms. Tanka tells the story from multiple first person views, shedding light on the "Day of Infamy" in an easy to read, personal way. " said.

" I love reading about World War II. This is the first book I have read on Pearl Harbor. This book is a childrens/young adult book. I found the pictures fascinating. Some were actual pictures and others were exceptionally drawn.Attack on Pearl Harbor has the view point of the Japanese and their planned attack. You also learn about some of the people that were there when the attack happened. I nice enjoyable short book " said.

" Attack on Pearl Harbor is filled with spectacular illustrations, photographs, detailed maps, and several first-hand account statements of the events that day. This is a lengthy book to share in a read-aloud; teachers may wish to break it up into a couple readings. A nice addition to any intermediate, high school classroom or library and a good resource for reports or just pleasure reading. " said.

Shelley Tanaka does an amazing job of transporting the reader into the terror (for Americans) and excitement (for Japanese) of December 7, 1941 and the Pearl Harbor attack. Told from 4 different point of views, 2 American and 2 Japanese, the reader gets to see how all different types of people planned, dealt with and reacted to the attack. The perspectives range from an 11-year-old Hawaiian to the commander of the Japanese air attack. The book does a great job of not only being sequential, but alternating between the different points of view within the account. In addition to the text, the book has photographs, paintings, maps, and diagrams. The three additions to the text that I adored the most were two sidebars with primary accounts of the effects of Pearl Harbor on a Hawaiian girl and a Hawaiian of Japanese descent as well as a photograph of the first page of President Roosevent's speech with editing and revising completed on it. I also am glad that the author included an epilogue with "where are they now" as well as information about the Pearl Harbor memorial. Overall, a perfect book to learn about or extend knowledge on the Pearl Harbor attack.
