Summary

The events surrounding the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 did not look the same to everyone involved. Step back in time and into the shoes of a fireman fighting the fires, a girl whose home is destroyed, and a resident of Chinatown as readers act out the scenes that took place in the midst of this historic event. Written with simplified, considerate text to help struggling readers, books in this series are made to build confidence as readers engage and read aloud. This book includes a table of contents, glossary, index, author biography, sidebars, and timelines.
