Boardwalk Babies

by Marissa Moss Year Published: 2021


This week’s pick is a Battle of the Books picture book!  I think it’s a great book for students of all ages, but probably would be best for 3rd-5th graders.  Boardwalk Babies, by Marissa Moss, tells one of those stories of history that I never knew about.  I don’t want to spoil too much, but it tells about how a young doctor used the World’s Fair to bring attention to premature babies and how we could better take care of them.  If you are looking for an uplifting story about believing in change and science, then please check out this book.  I think your students would be fascinated by it and it could lead to all sorts of discussions about inventions and getting your voice heard. We have three copies– check one out today!
