9781590984277: Aurora Means Dawn

With bold strokes of color and detail, Scott Russell Sanders and Jill Kastner offer children a rich opportunity to participate imaginatively in history. Focusing on the hopes and hardships faced by one family, they provide a story that echoes the experiences of countless pioneers men, women, and children who left their homes in the East to travel to largely unknown and unsettled lands.
On the Ohio frontier in the early 1800s, with help from folks in a neighboring village, the Sheldons began a new settlement, which they called Aurora, the Latin word for dawn. There are many towns and great cities across America that arose, like Aurora, from such hopeful beginnings.
This resonant picture book gives children a vivid, personalized understanding of how our nation came to be.

About the Author:

Scott Russell Sanders grew up in Ohio. After receiving his Ph.D. from Cambridge University, he moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where he and his wife have reared two children, and where he is Distinguished Professor of English at Indiana University. The author says, I am trying to help children imagine history through the sharing of past lives, especially the lives of families who made their way into the wild heart of the continent.

Her books have been recognized in Children s Books of the Year lists by Bank Street College and Smithsonian Magazine, and have been selected for the American Bookseller Association Pick of the Lists and Notable Children s Trade Books in the Field of Social Studies.
