Back In Time
The movie takes place not long before the U.S. sent its troops to Europe during WWII, and FDR is hosting King Albert and Queen Elizabeth at his retreat home he called Hyde Park on Hudson. Much of the movie centers on FDR's relationship with his mistress Daisy.
Two miserable presidents: everything your schoolbooks didn't tell you about the Civil War by Steve Sheinkin ; illustrated by Tim Robinson — Seriously, put this book on hold, because you'll want it as soon as I return it. Loved this book about the Civil War (we're still in the midst of its 150th anniversary, by the way). Sheinkin manages to hit all the high points I remember learning about, while also filling in much more interesting details. He adds personal information about the more famous folks involved in the war in addition to telling stories about ordinary people. I'm really digging this author, who also wrote Bomb, The Notorious Benedict Arnold, and others (seriously - none of these should show available in the library catalog - check them out now).
Bomb: the race to build and steal the world's most dangerous weapon by Steve Sheinkin
I saw a movie about four hours long on the Titanic. My mom told us to skip the inappropriate parts. It was cool anyway
