Book Overview

Something wicked was brewing in the small town of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. It started when two girls, Betty Parris and Abigail Williams, began having hysterical fits. Soon after, other local girls claimed they were being pricked with pins. With no scientific explanation available, the residents of Salem came to one conclusion: it was witchcraft Over the next year and a half, nineteen people were convicted of witchcraft and hanged while more languished in prison as hysteria swept the colony. Author Joan Holub gives readers and inside look at this sinister chapter in history.

   Just what I wanted
I used this in the homeschool with my 5th grader. This was very appropriate, but age - honest. And I learned a lot of right along with my child.
   Insightful history for young readers
Nevertheless, it was a good introduction to the turmoil of that period, and inspired me to read more about the history of this blight on early American history.
Good, short overview of the Salem Witch trials.
   Great Book!
I bought this for a small homeschool lesson. Easy to read and understand at the elementary level. My kids loved it so we bought more of this series for other events!
   Easy read and very interesting.
Great to read and easy to do. Info : Love the Info. Don 't know how accurate it is, but. It is a wonder how people believe in so many strange things and then punish each other for it as if they are any better.
   A great read after a trip to Salem!
Our family visited Salem, MA earlier this year and loved it. Kids loved it. Several weeks after we found her, our daughter discovered this book at a friend's house and read it cover to cover. Needless to say that we now own our own copy of As a Kindle E-book, and it's fantastic!
   my 9 yo said it was a little scary but enjoyed it
Not my personal favorite in this line of books that I read out of about 15 with my 9-year-old son. He said it was a little scary witches, but enjoyed learning about the trials. Covers some adult topics that need to be quoted to my son, like what is a trial and hanging someone. In general, he loves these books and also enjoyed this one. I'm really glad that they came with this line of books Who Was What Was ''.
   Comprehensible children's book about Salem Witch hunts
The book is aimed at adventurous children. My wife and I then purchased it for our daughters. We're planning a trip to Salem, it is wise to have them educated before. The book has accurate stories, ranging from the beginning of the events to a closing of the hunts. The last few pages have photos, some of which are historical sites and portraits. The Cons exceeds a little over 100 pages of information. There are too many illustrations filling most of the pages, leaving little room for more details, historical characters and events.
   These always do a great job of condensing information while staying interesting
My daughter loves all the books of Who Was and is excited about starting with What WereWas'books. These always do a great job of combining information while staying interesting. They are understandable without being patronizing for elementary children.
   Great for Basic Overview
My husband and I booked a Salem walking tour and I wanted to refresh myself on what actually happened during the Salem witch trials. This book is a quick read and gave me some historical sights to look for in case they are not on the tour. Hopefully my kids will be able to read this as they reach an appropriate age for the troubling aspect of our collective history.
