Brings history alive!
Really love the way the Zoomable books bring history alive through text, images, and audio. Very understandable for all levels. I had the WW's pretty mixed up in my mind, but this eBook provides such a rich multimedia experience that make it easier to remember the details.
Perfect for a high school WWII unit
I recommend this iBook to any high school history teacher that covers WWII. The simple break-down of concepts and integrated multimedia is perfect to keep high school students engaged throughout the WWII unit.
